March 5th – World Energy Efficiency Day

05 Mar 2020

The World Energy Efficiency Day is celebrated in honor of the first meeting of the World Energy Experts on energy crisis in the world and its possible solutions, held on the 5th of March 1998 in Austria.

This year, traditionally, the Municipality Tivat will celebrate the World Energy Efficiency Day by sharing energy efficient LED light bulbs for households. So stop by our Municipality building on Thursday, March 5th, and get your free energy efficient light bulb with some useful advice in terms of energy saving in your daily routine. 700 light bulbs will be distributed with LED light sources whose consumption is many times less than light bulbs of the same light power produced by traditional technology. For nine years in a row, the Municipality of Tivat has been conducting the action of distributing energy efficient light bulbs to its citizens.

Energy efficiency in the broadest sense means reducing energy loss and its efficient use in all areas of work, life and practical activity, that is, reducing energy consumption without disrupting comfort and standard of living.

Each of us can reduce energy consumption without disrupting our lifestyle, and in addition to contributing globally, it will also contribute to saving our own money.

Energy efficiency is directly related to environmental protection, since it promotes the use of renewable energy sources (sun, wind, river flows …). Municipality Tivat is implementing activities and projects precisely with the aim of increasing energy efficiency and a more responsible attitude towards the environment.

The goal of Tivat Municipality is to further develop the municipality as a city in which the priorities are balanced economic development, spatial planning and environmental protection. A very important factor is the awareness of the community when it comes to the environment and energy efficiency.

Consequently, following the European trends in the field of energy efficiency, the state of Montenegro adopted the Rulebook, which gradually from 2018, prohibited the placing of classic incandescent lamps on the market.
