Green Action demands immediate ratification of the Kyoto protocol and the activation of the program encouraging energy efficiency and renewable energy sources.
U has established a new, more radical and energetic politic. Its main goals are 20% more energy efficiency, with the reduction of total energy spending by 13%, and the stimulation of renewals, which would have to secure at least 20% of total energy by the year 2020. For Croatia, a country with great potential for the use of renewable energy sources, this is a big opportunity for economic development (for example this sector may secure anywhere from 10000 to 20000 new working placements) and substitution for fossil oils, as well as reducing pollutions.
Unfortunately, a lack of political will and pressure from monopolists from INA and HEP currently blocks activation of the ambitious program to stimulate energy efficiency and the use of renewable energy sources.
