Pomeranian Energy Picnic
In order to tackle global warming and its negative impacts the world community needs to take actions. Transforming the building sector towards efficiency plays a key role in this context since heating, supply of warm water and cooling in private households account for approx. 80 % of the overall European energy consumption.
The Baltic Sea Conference Energy Efficient Cities, which will take place on the 17th and 18th of October in Gdynia (Poland), aims at addressing this topic with a focus on energy efficiency in municipalities.
Many citizens came to participate in the activities offered during the first “Pomeranian Energy Picnic” by Gdynia seashore. The Regional Fund for Environmental Conservation and Water Management (WFOS) in cooperation with the city of Gdynia organized this event to promote topics like renewable energy sources, energy efficiency and recycling. The focus of the fair framed by the eighth Pomeranian Energy Days was on clean air and pollution caused by burning fuels in traffic, heating and industry.
