The City of Zagreb
The City of Zagreb is the capital and the largest city of the Republic of Croatia. It is located in the northwest of the country, along the Sava river, at the southern slopes of the Medvednica mountain. Zagreb lies at an elevation of approximately 122 m (400 ft) above sea level. In the last official census of 2011 the population of the City of Zagreb was 792,875. The wider Zagreb metropolitan area includes the City of Zagreb and the separate Zagreb County bringing the total metropolitan area population up to 1,110,517. It is the only metropolitan area in Croatia with a population of over one million. As the center of the largest region in Croatia, city of Zagreb has started the process of becoming passive house region with renewable energy. Learning and developing solutions, models and examples during the passive house regions with renewable energies project, Zagreb will be one of the main regions in Croatia which will disseminate knowledge to the others. “Vision of Zagreb for the 21st century”, a document presented by the Mayor of Zagreb on the inauguration day of the City’s new government in 2005, defines a set of values for selection of City’s strategic projects in the field of energetics and sustainable development.
Reaching nearly zero energy through the Passive House Standard with the targets set by the EU is the challenge for City of Zagreb, especially connected in the residential housing and commercial sectors. The main involvement is expected of all relevant stakeholders.
