    Focus topics: energetic efficiency

    Our readers are already familiar with the fact that Serbia is not a country with above-average natural resources. In each issue of our Magazine, we publish several expert texts about our resources for energy production and how to use them so that readers do not lag behind the experts in information.

    Of course, everyone knows that we are neither Saudi Arabia nor Venezuela, so we cannot enjoy the luxury of energy supply at low prices and assured competitiveness of the economy. In the interview with Aleksandar Macura from the RES Foundation, you can read, among other things, why the standard of our population cannot be built on low energy prices in the long term, as well as how we can achieve better air quality.

    In our country, a large number of companies do not have organized management of energy and energy consumption. Despite this, they still can partially replace current electricity consumption with some other form of energy or energy source, claims Ljubinko Savić from the Serbian Chamber of Commerce for our Magazine. You will find solutions in the text Pillars of support for companies during the energy crisis.
    If you think you know a lot about Novi Sad, we advise you to check how far they have come in developing bicycle traffic and how many bridges they plan to build. For your next tour of Serbian Athens, we suggest you check when the Botanical Garden and the Creative District will be open and read what awaits you there in an interview with the mayor of Novi Sad, Milan Đurić. 

    What are our habits when we buy household appliances? Do we take into account their energy efficiency or do we choose them based on other parameters? You will find the answers if you read the text Energy efficiency factor when buying household appliances in Serbia, based on research conducted as part of the campaign “Turn to green”. Inspirational stories await you in the People and Challenges section, just like you’re used to. Marija Simeon produces natural cosmetic preparations and plans to connect with farms throughout Serbia that produce and process indigenous plant species that she would use in her products. Srđan and Vesna grow fresh tomatoes, strawberries and local carp using aquaponics, a specific agricultural production created through the combined effect of fish and plants. 

    We have slightly opened doors that lead you to new stories. It’s up to you to open them wide.
