26 JANUARY 2022 Did you know that households in Serbia consume about 60% more electricity than the average household in the European Union? Having that fact in mind, an uninformed reader would think that the living standard in Serbia is far higher than in the EU countries, but we know this is not the case. The answer actually lies in the very poor energy efficiency that affects a large number of buildings in our country. The poor condition of buildings and houses and higher energy consumption in Serbia do not only affect our wallets but also contribute to air [...]

21 JANUARY 2022. POSITION PAPER Proposal for the improvement of the implementation of energy efficiency measures and the use of renewable energy sources in Belgrade Climate change is, without a doubt, a challenge that will define the 21st century. The average global temperature is already about 1.2 degrees Celsius higher than in the pre-industrial period, and the world is very close to exceeding the warming limit of 1.5 degrees, after which great consequences for the planet's climate are expected. The sixth report of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, published in August 2021, announced a "code red" for all humanity. [...]
"Almost 27% of the territory of Serbia is extremely suitable and suitable for the installation of solar power plants." - said Nikola Mladenovic from the Center for development of informal education (CD4E), at the presentation of the publication on the potentials of solar energy in Serbia, which was prepared within the Climate Forum network. The study aims to provide practical information on the application of solar systems and consists of four segments: basic data on solar energy and technologies most used, the potential of solar energy in Serbia, a brief overview of necessary steps in the installation of solar systems, [...]
15 DECEMBER 2021 "Greater vulnerability of women to climate change is the result of social structures and norms that put women at a disadvantage, not natural predispositions," said Marina Andrijevic, Ph.D., from the International Institute for System Analysis in her introductory speech at the forum "What gender is climate change?", held on December 14, organized by the Climate Forum. "Women, more than men, suffer in certain weather disasters, either fatal or with injuries, or suffer from some longer-term consequences, such as domestic violence," explained Andrijevic, Ph.D. Tanja Popovicki, program manager at the RES Foundation, Zorica Skakun, gender equality advisor [...]
28. OCTOBER 2021. Although there are certain positive indicators, the general situation in Serbia when it comes to the application of the principles of green building is not at a satisfactory level, as stated by the participants of the panel discussion "Future of green building in Serbia" held on Tuesday, October 26th, organized by the Climate Forum. According to the regulations, every new project in Serbia must have an energy passport, however, only about 5,000 of them have been officially registered. There are even fewer facilities with sustainability certificates such as BREEAM and LEED, only around thirty of them, [...]
26. OCTOBER 2021. Analysis of the research on state, needs and attitudes of citizens of the Republic of Serbia in the field of energy efficiency and renewable energy sources Almost two-thirds of Serbian citizens are interested in becoming a "producer-consumer" of electricity, 45% of them are interested in state subsidies, while more than one-third of respondents are not familiar with state subsidies for the introduction of renewable energy sources in households, according to the latest research by the Environment Improvement Centre on the state, needs and attitudes of the citizens of our country in the field of energy efficiency and [...]
11. OCTOBER 2021. "Abandoning coal is Serbia's obligation because we have signed and ratified the Paris Agreement. As a responsible member of the international community, we should fulfill it", said Aleksandar Macura from the RES Foundation, at the discussion "How can Serbia decarbonise its electricity system?", which was held on 5th October 2021, and organized by the Climate Forum. Nikola Rajaković, professor at the Faculty of Electrical Engineering and president of the Energy Association, Aleksandar Macura, program director of the RES Foundation, and Nikola Stamenov, development director for Serbia at CWP, talked about the future of domestic energy. The [...]
The Environment Improvement Centre, in partnership with the Klima101 portal, is implementing the Energy of Change project, which aims to more strongly involve citizens in climate change mitigation processes through education and information on existing and new opportunities in energy efficiency and renewable energy sources. The sixth report of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, based on 14,000 peer-reviewed scientific papers, states that there is no doubt that humans are responsible for global warming. How much the Earth will warm depends exclusively on our choices today, and scientists and the international community agree that any warming above 1.5°C would mean [...]
The Environment Improvement Centre in partnership with the Klima101 portal, the Center for development of non-formal education and the Association GM Optimist is implementing the project "Climate Forum" which aims to improve the capacity of member organizations, create a new action framework, improve dialogue with all stakeholders and start creating specific scientific and professional products intended for better informing and education of citizens. The issues of climate change and energy transition have been neglected in Serbia for many years. Inactivity in these areas has also affected the opportunities for citizens to participate in the public debate on climate change issues [...]
