The Regional Energy Agency Kvarner had great pleasure and honour last month (on June 9 2021) to present the pilot activities on Unije to the highest national officials and also to some very important EU-level representatives, during the 10th Krk international energy conference entitled “Energy Transition in the Context of Climate Change and the New European Green Plan”, held in a hybrid manner on the Croatian island of Krk and online.

The Conference was organized by the Association Eko Kvarner, Faculty of Economics and Business of the University of Rijeka and Regional Energy Agency Kvarner, under the patronage of Mr. Zoran Milanovic, the President of the Republic of Croatia. The European Green Deal and the Mediterranean Strategy for Sustainable Development 2016-2022 strive to achieve a climate neutral Europe and islands in particular have a unique potential to be trailblazers of the green transition. There is clear consensus that clean energy can better flourish when local support and communities are included in transitioning.
