  • In general, high levels of urbanisation are associated with higher wealth, and there is a sharp disparity between the productivity of urban and rural areas, which affects national productivity and growth. http://www.mckinsey.com/insights/economic_studies/a_new_dawn_reigniting_growth_in_central_and_eastern_europe
  • Zagreb is strategically well located in Europe http://www.mckinsey.com/insights/economic _studies/a_new_dawn_reigniting_growth_in_ central_and_eastern_europe?cid=other-emlalt-mgi-mck-oth-1312

Slovakia and the Czech Republic for example have already made significant progress in introducing competition and unbundling. Bulgaria, Croatia and Romania have more work to do. http://www.mckinsey.com/insights/economic_studies/a_new_dawn_reigniting_growth_in_central_and_eastern_europe
  • Energy and electricity
  • Ostrog Elementary School in Kastel Luksic, Croatia sets out to be the first energy independent school in the world. Initiatives include installation of solar panels and lighting upgrades. http://www.inhabitots.com/croatian-elementary-school-hopes-to-become-the-first-energy-independent-school-in-the-world/
  • The European Bank for reconstruction and development financed Croatia’s first independent biomass power plant project through the Western Balkans Sustainable Energy Direct Financing Facility.

  • The Croatian state still owns a 45% stake in the national oil and gas company, INA, which has been privatised to MOL (Hungary). MOL currently has a 47% stake and management rights according to its agreement with the Government. http://www.ebrd.com/downloads/country/strategy/croatia.pdf p. 35.
  • HEP, the vertically integrated utility owned by the State of Croatia, has a market monopoly in the power sector, which constitutes a barrier for new independent power producers. In addition, commercial banks appear to have a rather low level of awareness of and expertise in renewable energy projects. http://www.ebrd.com/downloads/country/strategy/croatia.pdf
  • The persistence of state ownership in electricity generation and distribution, as in Croatia and Slovenia, could be a drag on future growth, given the lack of government resources to finance the expansion of capacity. http://www.mckinsey.com/insights/economic_studies/a_new_dawn_reigniting_growth_in_central_and_eastern_europe
  • Croatia ranks # 26 on the open data index. Much more transparency is needed, for example about government spending. https://index.okfn.org
