Swiss Contribution

EscherTec AG and the involved Swiss companies and institutions (Drift Consulting GmbH in Baden and Lucerne University of Applied Sciences and Arts) have high standards and field proven expertise. They will contribute their know-how in the field of creating concepts and development of energy systems, project management, rational design and urban planning.


In 2010 the City of Trebinje’s government signed an agreement to increase its energy efficiency by 20%, to increase the share of renewable energy by 20% and to reduce the CO2 emissions by 20% until 2020. Up to now, they have conducted smaller projects which have led to some improvements. Therefore, Trebinje wants to increase the awareness of conscientious electricity consumption, by their own example, as well as their commitment to use renewable energy sources. The aim of the project is to develop an energy concept for a zero-energy area and a transition roadmap, including a centralized energy service center for monitoring and optimizing operations. Based on measurable results, Trebinje intends to encourage other institutions, city authorities, companies and owners of residential facilities to follow their example by implementing tools, processes and smart efficient equipment in order to improve overall energy efficiency.
