Regional Energy Agency Kvarner Ltd./ Regionalna energetska agencija Kvarner (REA Kvarner) was established in 2009 by the County of Primorje – Gorski Kotar under the framework of the Intelligent Energy Europe programme. The agency is set up as a non-profit public owned enterprise, a single organization and institutionalized framework for more rational use of existing energy resources, as well as stimulating energy production from renewable and alternative sources in the County.
Special goals: drafting of energy balance sheets and energy action plans, facilitating energy efficiency plans implementation, stimulating the use of renewable energy sources and assembling/supporting of expert potential, as well as supporting other subjects included in energy development actions on a regional or local level, providing energy efficiency and renewable energy sources related information and consulting.
The project started in 2010 under the name “Sun on Your Roof”, and continued until 2013 under the new name of “Green Energy in My Home” since it enlarged its scope from only solar thermal collectors to include heating and hot water systems running on biomass. The Regional Energy Agency Kvarner published three separate calls for proposals – in 2010, 2011 and 2012.
