On the first day of the visit, the project was presented, as were the consortium members, and presentations were held on project implementation and management, project communication, reporting, and financing. They also talked about the energy flows of the neighbourhood and the preservation of cultural and historical heritage.
The kick-off meeting continued the next day in Karlovac, where the previous projects implemented by that city were presented. Also, a field tour of locations and a visit to the hydroelectric power plant in Ozalj were organized.
In the City of Karlovac, through planned project activities, the integration of renewable energy sources will be carried out in or around the city districts, battery systems will be installed, and, in general, work will be done on the digitization of energy systems through smart solutions, all to bring modern solutions closer to citizens. The project identifies and explores the possibilities of how to revitalize and modernize cultural heritage; that is, it combines historical heritage and modern technologies that will result in concrete plans with the aim of cultural assets reaching the energy and climate goals of the European Union.
