How to combine historic richness with innovative energy projects?

In the fifth episode of our SCCALE 20-30-50 podcast series, hosted by Energy Cities, we discuss how to integrate modern energy and climate standards in historic buildings. This podcast will bring you to Porec, a small city in Croatia, also UNESCO World Heritage site. 

We spoke with Gordana Lalic, CEO at Parentium, Porec’s energy company (and SCCALE 20 30 50 pilot). From picking up litter with her friends as a kid, to heading the city’s energy company, Gordana has always been a local sustainability champion! Parentium is piloting a system to make solar energy and beautiful ancient buildings compatible, but also to include locals in the process.

In the episode, you will have the opportunity to learn more about:

  • How a small turistic city deals with their energy challenges
  • Porec’s innovative crowdfunding model to fund solar panels on public historic buildings
  • Porec’s new info point on solar PV
