The Government on July 4 approved a Blueprint for Energy Efficiency in Slovakia that is aimed at achieving energy requirements on average with the European Union.
Drafted by the Economy Ministry, the document is also designed to create conditions that will motivate the public and business sectors to become energy efficient, boost energy security, and reduce the dependence of the Slovak economy on imports of crude oil.
The blueprint proposes achieving energy savings by putting the principles of efficiency into practice and implementing specific energy-saving measures.
"These measures will make it possible to boost energy efficiency and reduce Slovakia's economic dependence on imports of oil and natural gas," the ministry said.
