Energy-Efficient Palace of Justice - City of Koprivnica
  • Start year: 2012
  • Type: Technical/Infrastructure investment

Based on the city’s passivity policy, all public buildings the
city constructs must be energy efficient. The city has undertaken
an ambitious construction project, its Palace of Justice,
to house all municipal and regional courts. The structure
is currently under construction and when finished will
be certified as a low-energy public building. At least 70%
lower energy consumption and 80% lower greenhouse gas
emissions must be achieved in comparison with conventional
constructions.

Rainwater Recuperation Project - City of Koprivnica
  • Start year: 2012
  • Type: Technical/Infrastructure investment
  • Status: In operation

Previously all rainwater was transferred to the wastewater
treatment plant with a resultant loss of freshwater and undue
burden to the system, which used energy for treating fresh
rainwater in the same way as wastewater. Now, an alternate
system is being built to discharge rainwater into the stream
that passes through the city, restoring vibrancy to the stream,
making it more attractive and keeping its biodiversity alive.
