ABSTRACT
Regional policy and measures adopted by each government in its decisions are one of the tools in reducing carbon footprint. Operation of public buildings contributes to the total energy consumption in the EU and CO2 emissions. Currently there are effective solutions leading to a reduction of energy intensity in the operation of public buildings. Reducing energy consumption and the use of renewable energy sources in buildings represents important measures needed to reduce energy dependence and greenhouse gas reductions. Analysis of the current state and the design of appropriate solutions and actions can help regions to focus their resources on a few key priorities instead of distributing their investments between the different areas and the business sector.
