A1 Croatia investing in EU-backed energy project
A1 Croatia, a subsidiary of A1 Telekom Austria Group, said it is investing EUR 16.3 million (USD 2.6 million) in an eco-friendly energy project that is 55% financed from European Union funds.
The project, named 'LIFE4GREENBROADBAND', envisages the construction of 120 solar power plants and 200 energy-efficient cooling units at base stations, A1 Croatia said last week.
By implementing the project, A1 Croatia will make energy savings of 1.72 million kWh (kilowatt-hour) per year, which will translate into cutting its carbon dioxide emissions by 404 tons, it said. A1 Croatia has already cut its carbon footprint by 75% and the whole A1 group aims to become carbon-neutral by 2030.
