Central European Forum for Development CEDEF in cooperation with the Energy Efficiency Agency of the Republic of Serbia and company Henkel announced another journalist competition for the best media coverage on the topic of: "Insulation in Buildings and Energy Efficiency".
The aim of the competition is to raise public awareness of the importance of isolation as one of the key factors in energy efficiency in buildings. The energy consumption in buildings of any kind, including residential, takes the most energy of the total energy consumption in many countries, an average of up to 60%, and in Serbia 39-42%. Therefore, it is necessary to work towards improving energy efficiency in buildings.
