We now have a strong advantage in Croatia and in the region to help create more climate-friendly buildings and support Croatians to reduce their energy consumption and lower their bills at the same time”, says Roberto Colombo, Regional Manager at Brunata.   

A helping hand to reduce energy consumption
Brunata’s solutions also contribute to governmental efforts to reduce energy consumption and support the goal of the green EU directive called The Energy Efficiency Directive (EED). This directive introduces legally binding measures to encourage efforts to use energy more efficiently in all stages and sectors of the supply chain. It offers a common framework for the promotion of energy efficiency within the EU to meet its energy efficiency headline target of 20% by 2020 – and a target for 2030 of at least 32.5%.

“Brunata on an annual basis issues millions of consumption-based bills. The fair distribution of energy costs and individual billing motivates residents to save up to 25% energy - according to the European Commission. This is a service with sustainable success, that gives a helping hand to reduce energy consumption and for governments to reach the target of the green EU directive EED. It is a service with sustainable success, that we are very proud of. At Brunata, we are all passionate about continuing to work for what has always been our value proposition.
