Welcome to Velenje – our first relay city in Slovenia
The city of Velenje lies in the North – East of Slovenia. It is mainly built on the surface of the valley Šaleška Dolina. The City of Velenje has 34.000 inhabitants and an area of 83,5 sq km, being the 5th largest Slovenian city.
The Municipality of Velenje did a strategic energy plan for the whole city in 2005 which includes analyses of the energy performance of public and other buildings. The energy indicators in the public buildings are currently higher than the European standards. For this purpose the Municipality of Velenje has been doing energy audits of public buildings, increasing the awareness of all the inhabitants concerning energy efficiency and also stimulating leaders of public institutions to be more energy sustainable.
We congratulate Velenje for joining the Display Campaign and for being our relay city in Slovenia. The calculation tool has been translated into Slovenian and we hope to see some more Slovenian cities joining the Campaign soon.
