The thirty ninth National Assembly passed a Law on energy efficiency.
It defines the required minimum of actions and activities aimed at increasing the efficiency of energy usage,
which should be implemented by the state management bodies - the ministries, the regional councils, the municipal
councils and agencies and the energy consumers. The national policy is to be implemented on the basis of national
long-term and short-term programs on energy efficiency adopted by the Council of Ministers. The programs for the
various industrial branches, the regions and the municipalities should be developed by the relevant executive power
bodies and they should be submitted to the Agency for Energy Efficiency.
The Agency should announce the state policy to the wide public in an appropriate way by publishing it
in a newsletter issued by it.
The Ministers should develop and implement energy efficiency programs in the areas they are in charge of.
The regional governors should develop and implement the execution of regional energy efficiency programs and
they should also act as coordinators with regard to the local government authorities.
Energy efficiency assessments and audits are performed on all investment projects for the construction,
reconstruction and upgrading of facilities and also on facilities in operation for establishing their energy
consumption and their compliance with the energy efficiency requirements.
All construction and reconstruction projects should be subject to energy efficiency
assessment as part of their evaluation for compliance with the existing requirements set
in the Law on spatial planning (ZUT).
All buildings, state or municipal property, which are in operation and have useful area
of over 1000 m2 are subject to certification.
The municipal councils in compliance with the Law on energy efficiency accept energy
efficiency programs in accordance with Art. 10, paragraph 4 of the Law on energy
efficiency and also programs for:
- Rehabilitation of all buildings including those for offices, farming, etc.
- Introducing of energy saving outdoor lighting systems in the populated areas and for the buildings.
- Switching to the use of other fuels and other energy efficient steps.
The activities related to increasing of the energy efficiency are well justified.
Regardless of the size of the populated areas, you inevitably suffer from high
energy consumptions and you ask questions like:
Why is your energy consumption so high?
Why do latest technologies never reach you?
Why do you have to put up with these inconveniences, poor lighting, high budget
expenses on fuels and yet you still have to believe that 'it is the only
possible solution for the time being'?
The implementation of a program for increasing of the energy efficiency that is
based on solid technical and economic grounds can substantially relieve the
municipal budgets and reduce the expenses of the municipal companies.
