Zadar County (Croatia)

  • Local pilot site assessment

The Zadar County is located in the central part of the Croatian Adriatic coast and has a population of 170,000 inhabitants, of which 60% live in six urban centres including the city of  Zadar. The primary target groups in the Croatian pilot site of EmpowerMed are households with a higher risk of energy poverty, namely: households with women as primarily caregivers, regardless of their age structure; retirees; households inhabited primarily with elderly over 65; unemployed and employees living in households with a monthly income at or below the average monthly net earnings and do not receive the support of social services. Women and women-led households will be prioritised in the recruitment and engagement of participant households among target groups. EmpowerMed project actions in Zadar include 200 household visits in which energy audits will be conducted and low-cost energy efficiency measures will be implemented, distribution of ‘energy packages’ to participant households and energy efficiency training for 1,000 citizens.
