Measures to increase Energy Efficiency (EE) and Use of Renewable Energy Sources (RES)

Measures to increase Energy Efficiency (EE) and Use of Renewable Energy Sources (RES) in Electrical Power Installations of Vetropack Straža tvornica stakla d.d.

Vetropack Straža d.d. successfully realised the project "Measures to increase Energy Efficiency and use of RES in electrical power installations of Vetropack Straža tvornica stakla d.d.". The project was carried out within the scope of the Operational Program Competitiveness and Cohesion 2014 – 2020, of the competition "Increasing Energy Efficiency and Use of Renewable Energy Sources in Manufacturing Industries" and was co-financed by the European Regional Development Fund. The grant agreement was signed on 18/06/2018.

Project description 
The project "Measures to increase Energy Efficiency and use of RES in electrical power installations of Vetropack Straža tvornica stakla d.d." contributed to solving specific developmental problems of the Croatian economy evident in the form of inefficient energy use and low share of use of renewable energy sources. By carrying out the project and implementing the RES and EE measures in electrical power installations and plants of Vetropack Straža d.d., energy savings, benefit for the environment and the community were realised, and competitiveness was increased by reducing production costs. The project was successfully realised with the support of the company Speculum d.o.o. in project implementation and procurement procedures. 

Project objectives and results 
General objective: Supporting the realisation of energy savings through increased energy consumption efficiency in manufacturing industries, enabling equal quantities of results using less input energy and reducing the share of conventional (fossil) fuels in the total energy consumption by introducing renewable energy sources.
Specific objective: By implementing EE and RES measures, reduction in consumption of delivered energy and increase of the share of use of renewable energy sources in total energy consumption.

The project included the following elements:
EP1: Preparation of design technical documentation of the project proposal
EP2: Energy efficiency and renewable energy sources in manufacturing plants
EP3: Energy efficiency improvements of buildings
EP4: Promotion and visibility 
EP5: Project management and administration

The successful project realisation enabled achievement of the following results: 
R1: Successfully applied project proposal
R2: Successfully implemented energy efficiency measures and renewable energy sources in manufacturing plants
R3: Energy efficiency improvements of buildings
R4: Increased project visibility and visibility of services and products of the Applicant
R5: Successfully realised project in cooperation with the company Speculum d.o.o. 

The total value of the project was HRK 25,407,441.24 of which the grant was HRK 12,050,166.78.
