The Regional Development Agency of Gorenjska Region improved the energy efficiency in 12 public buildings and introduced renewable energy systems as a source of electricity and heating. The goal to minimize the consumption of energy in public buildings where the energy consumption costs are high could be achieved. The public buildings are used by many inhabitants of the region. Therefore the change of energy or heating source in these buildings is also useful for the promotion of renewable energy.

Up to now, "green energy" in Slovenia has been almost exclusively derived from hydroelectric power plants, but that is set to change. Switzerland has been supporting a project in Slovenia that promotes other sources of renewable energy: a noise barrier along a motorway has been equipped with solar panels and 29 public buildings that were previously heated with oil have been converted to biomass heating, 12 of which have also been made energy efficient.

Financial Reporting Technical Assistance Program

01.09.2008 - 31.12.2014

The Financial Reporting Technical Assistance Program provides support to five national administrations (in Slovenia as well as in the Czech Republic, Estonia, Latvia, Poland) which face capacity constraints and challenges in fully implementing,  both in law and in practice, the very demanding obligations imposed by the rapidly-evolving acquis communautaire in this field.

Project Preparation Facility (PPF)

01.08.2008 - 14.04.2012

The Swiss Contribution to enlargement aims to finance a broad variety of projects. The PPF provided the necessary financial assistance to enable Executing Agencies to submit high quality project proposals. This was especially important in the case of complex projects.
