In the frame of the public education campaign on energy efficiency and performance in our country, EcoAlbania organized on July 9th, 2018 the meeting “Policies for Energy Efficiency and Performance in Albania” with young people from the Democratic Party Youth Forum (FRPD). As part of a series of meetings, this was the second meeting with youth from political parties forums, where representatives of the Environmental Vigilance Network’s organizations and the environmental policy expert shared specific information regarding energy issues.
Meanwhile, Mr. Erjon Tase directed the youngsters to a discussion about the perspective of sustainable development, energy efficiency, and conditions that Albania should fulfill for joining the European family. He focused on existing legislation for energy efficiency and performance in buildings, while explaining the importance for accelerating adoption of amendments. “The energy efficiency law stipulates that payment for the energy efficiency certificate must be carried out by the builder. Don’t you think it is an additional expense for the builder? “- asked one of the participants. “This certificate is a guaranty for the consumer and also determines the apartment’s price. Therefore, being provided with the certificate is for the benefit of builders,” said Mr. Tase.
