Sažetak
The greater part of the energy consumption of local communities concerns the public sector's needs for electricity, district heating, gas and efficient public lighting. In recent years the emergence of new electricity production from renewable sources, contributes stability of the energy balance with minimal adverse consequences for the environment. Challenges of climate change, new environmental legislation and the liberalization of energy markets encouraged local government to practice energy management. Therefore, the subject of this research is investment feasibility into the public sector of energy efficiency. The authors use examples of city of Rijeka’s investments in solar electricity production and energy efficiency public lighting to analyze the feasibility of those investments, regarding the reduction effect of electricity consumption. Positive net present value for renewable energy project indicates importance of feed-in tariff selling price and significant internal rate of return (IRR). Thus, negative net present value in energy efficiency public lighting has important cost benefit in significant diminishment of carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions. The results of the research aim at determining that those projects has impact on the decrease of CO2 emissions in the environment and could be feasible at a same time. Paper conclusion is also that feed-in tariff subventions on selling renewable electricity price shall not last for a long period of time because they are ‘’start-up’’ type of subventions, designed only to develop renewable energy market in Croatia. Also, this paper demonstrates that besides no emissions of greenhouse gases (GHG), investment in solar energy is respectably financially feasible but only with subvention on selling electricity price. Based on the carried out analysis, several energy management activities acceptable for local communities were proposed. Those activities can contribute to significant reductions in the consumption of energy in public sector and have great impact on sustainable energy development of the local community. Further result of this research undertakes local government to lead similar projects forward good community perceptions and communication dissemination. This research shows that investments in local community energy sustainability can be both: cost effective and environmentally acceptable.
