Medjimurje energy agency ltd. (acronym MENEA) was established in year 2008 as a part of the EU project „Creation of energy agencies in Lleida (ES), Medjimurje (HR) and Montpellier (FR)“ financed from Intelligent Energy – Europe (IEE). Agency establishment was initiated by County of Medjimurje and Regional development agency REDEA. County of Medjimurje is also MENEA’s single owner.
MENEA was founded having in mind goal of promoting idea of sustainable development in accordance with actual needs in the area of the County of Medjimurje while promoting use of Renewable Energy Sources (RES) and Energy Efficiency (EE), which is in line with strategic goal of the County (promoting economic and social growth based on sustainable development and focused on innovation, knowledge transfer and preservation of natural and cultural heritage).
MENEA’s business activities include a wide range of activities through which information, technical and other needs of public and private sector in area of RES and EE are satisfied. Among others, MENEA’s activities include providing information and advice regarding energy through information and promotion channels, i.e. website, organizing seminars and workshops, projects implementation and through everyday direct contact with citizens and business community.

MENEA was established through an EU funded project (IEE), and had several successfully implemented projects since. All of the implemented projects that were funded by EU were so through Cross-border cooperation programme between Slovenia and Croatia (IR-OVE, BIOREGIO, EUpeR). Currently, MENEA is implementing three EU funded projects. Two of them are funded through Interreg Central Europe programme – RURES and Dynamic Light. One of the EU funded project is being implemented with the financial help from Interreg Cross-border cooperation between Hungary and Croatia (EE SUN). Together with a wide scope of different project partners, we are continuously applying new project ideas on various open calls of EU financing programmes. Apart from EU funded projects, MENEA has implemented several projects that were funded by national funds (installation of renewable energy sources in private households, enhancement of energy efficiency in private households, development of several regional energy action plans, programmes and SEAPs, broadband infrastructure documentation preparation, integrated passenger transport documentation preparation…). MENEA also acted as a technical assistance to the investor when applying the HR GEOc Geothermae project to European commissions’ NER300 programme. We had a great role in completing the application and, after the project received the award, we are still helping the investor in implementation of activities and with communication to national and EU relevant bodies.
