Energy efficiency

Energy efficiency is a very broad term that refers to the many ways we can get the same benefit (light, heat, motion, etc.) using less energy. The field covers efficient cars, energy-saving bulbs, improved industrial practices, better insulation of houses and a range of other technologies. Because saving energy means saving money, energy efficiency is highly profitable.


  • modernization and monitoring of consumers
  • reducing the consumption of electricity and other energy (reduction of CO2)
  • reducing maintenance and repair costs

Improving energy efficiency is a strategic objective of the national energy policy, due to the major contribution it has in achieving the security of energy supply, sustainability and competitiveness, to save primary energy resources and reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

The national policy for energy efficiency is part of the energy policy of the state and follows:
a) removing the barriers in promoting energy efficiency;
b) promoting energy efficiency mechanisms and financial instruments for energy savings;
c) the final consumer education and awareness on the importance and benefits of applying measures to improve energy efficiency;
d) cooperation between final users, manufacturers, suppliers, distributors of energy and public bodies in order to achieve goals set by the national policy of energy efficiency;
e) promoting fundamental and applied research in the field of efficient use of energy.

The national policy for energy efficiency defines the objectives for improving energy efficiency, targets of energy saving, measures to improve related energy efficiency in all sectors of the national economy especially referring to:
a) introduction of energy efficient technologies, modern systems of measurement and control systems as well as energy management, monitoring, evaluation, continuous energy efficiency and energy consumption forecasting;
b) promoting the use of equipment to the final consumers of energy efficient devices and renewable energy;
c) reducing the environmental impact of industrial activities and production, transport, distribution and consumption of all forms of energy;
d) implementation of the modern energy management;
e) providing financial and fiscal incentives, according to the law;
f) developing the market for energy services.
