In the 5th „Week of the energy efficiency“ on 1 October 2016. in Zadar was held „Fair of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy“, which recorded a record number of exhibitors. Twenty-two exhibitors from all over the Croatia presented on Zadar Forum the latest in the field of green technologies such as low-energy windows, solar showers, lamps, benches and calls for cyclists to infrared heating, pellets and solar panels as an ecological way of heating.
Croatia has seen positive effects in the energy sector because we have homemade and healthy energy that can meet the needs of the whole country and for export, and citizens today are more informed.
One of the exhibitors was Energo Mobil who is currently working on closed bus station with air conditioning for Dubai, and the public already met their work through solar benches. Great attention of visitors attracted the electric vehicles of vocational school Vice Vlatković from Zadar. But despite the fact that electric vehicles are the veichels of future, in Zadar were registered only five. The problem seems to be a set of batteries of limited life and an insufficient number of quick filling station.
