One of the activities significantly improving energy efficiency in Poland is the operational programme “Energy and environmental management in public buildings of Częstochowa City”. Through the realization of this programme the City of Częstochowa contributes to achieving national strategic objectives included in the Energy Policy of Poland until 2025 and in the National Energy Efficiency Action Plan (NEEAP) transferred to the municipality level in the “Local Energy Efficiency Plan of Action for the City of Częstochowa” document. The programme is a pilot project that has been prepared according to the structure of NEEAP. Its main objective is the identification of areas in which a reduction of energy consumption is possible, with the main focus being public buildings. The aforementioned document is one of the key elements contributing to making Czestochowa “a city of efficient energy”.

• the government hasn't any programme in place to carry out energy efficient renovations on at least 3% of the buildings they own and occupy by floor area
