The government in Ljubljana defined the measures to promote and boost energy efficiency in a draft law and proposed a long-term strategy for energy renovation of buildings in Slovenia by mid-century. The bill covers charging points for electric vehicles.

he Ministry of Infrastructure said its forthcoming Energy Efficiency Act would regulate the field in Slovenia and that some provisions in the draft match the Energy Act. Others have been amended or added in order to transpose European legislation into domestic law. The government also prepared a proposal for the long-term strategy for energy renovation of buildings until 2050 and launched a public consultation process in accordance with the requirements in European Union directives.

 

The text of the bill defines measures to increase and promote energy efficiency and the standards for related products. The authorities noted the frequent changes in European legislation that prompted the need to increase the scope and separate it from the existing law to ensure timely transposition.

 

The measurement of energy consumption and billing information is covered in more detail and the measurement of natural gas consumption is separated. All new buildings with a central heating or cooling source or within the district heating and cooling network will have to be equipped with individual meters for remote readings of heating, cooling and domestic hot water consumption, according to the document.
