The project ENSVET ensures free and professional energy advices to the citizens.
Slovenian Eco Fund, Slovenian Environmental Public Fund, has established over 50 offices where advices on how to implement energy efficiency measures are freely available. Consultants in these offices are available to over 800 thousands households in Slovenia and are giving free advices on how to reduce use of energy and improve energy efficiency in buildings.

Eco Fund is also giving to the households financial assistance in form of grants and soft loans. With the help of ENSVET network citizens have better prepared documentation and therefore greater chances to secure financial assistance.

Resources needed

Implementation of these free consultancy is a result of excellent cooperation between Eco Fund and Slovenian municipalities.

Evidence of success

On an average basis consultants give around 5.003 advices per year which results in 18.58 million kWh energy savings.

Difficulties encountered

Not all of citizens are aware of possibility to receive free and professional advices, therefore a great emphasis is given on promotion of network ENSVET.

Potential for learning or transfer

Establishment of offices where professionals give free and independent advices on RES and RUE is highly recommended since not all citizens have enough knowledge.
