Crom Alternative News

Investigative journalism and useful articles on various topics.

Energy efficient home, energy saving house or low energy home, are energetically efficient objects which enabling energy cost savings while contemporaneously contribute towards environmental sustainability. Cost savings, renewable energy, energy efficiency and environmental protection - are all terms which we face often, almost everyday. The problem of the realization of energy efficient house is as always, money - especially now when the global economic crisis is eating us up. However, energy saving homes are a factor which we surely have to brush upon when considering the questions of a healthy lifestyle, self sustainable communities and transition towards a better tomorrow.

In an insane society, a normal man must behave like a lunatic - that's the concept which within the unlimited free space decorates the walls of the modern presence in which we have enclosed ourselves. It may be very useful, for the 100th time, to remind ourselves how stupid a man can become when his job depends on stupidity - article "Dictatorship of Ignorance and Lack of Knowledge" and the official request "Money and the Mental Hygiene" fits perfectly for that purpose. Crom Alternative Currency System and organization Jupiter Project, have, recently, join forces to a concrete cooperation in accomplishing mutual goals: "Ecovillage, Flea Market And Humanitarian Funds". Project "Humanitarian Funds" has just been realized, significant financial resources has become available to the activities for the general social benefits. Among other things, it's a great fundraising opportunity for the non-governmental organizations. It's easy to guess, due to some "unknown" reason, nobody from the mass-media world found it congruent to transmit that important information to the wider population.


Progress - a path towards a better world and life, is usually an insuperable hurdle in the existing conditions. Saving of money with new technologies is, as absurd as it sounds, expensive and profitless. The high cost of low energy prices - such are circumstances and reality. I had a chance, the other day, to acquaint myself with a district which changed its fossil fuel power plants to wind power plants. It turned out that the production of electricity using wind power, also known as free energy, costs 10 times more than the conventional method.

If you plan on contributing towards the sustainability of the environment while at the same time saving on costs, building a low-energy home will unfortunately cost you much expensive than you expected. Free solar power - solar collectors, light and heat, thermal facades and other modern technological wonders - smart solar windows for example; in essence, are a battle for only a petty difference in some decimal, of course, after a longer period of use.

In Croatia, both on the national and regional level, you guessed it, there are no systemic incentives for positive changes of this kind - the use of latest technology for the construction of energy efficient systems and products. Financial help, or better said, low-energy architecture and co-financing, are two things which don't go together whatsoever.



However, just because the domestic housing incentive program doesn't contain the phrase "Rational Management of Energy" does not also mean that the eco-friendly structures, low-cost energy efficient construction, that is to say a energy saving house, must only represent the following: science fiction movie, unachievable dream or crucifix at the credit mercy and disfavor of financial vampires.

Why not? Why would the Federal Reserve and the European Central Bank be better than us in this regard? After all, creation of financial resources in today's modern society, is only a question of pushing a button on a computer keyboard. At the moment of the civilization's collapse, is there one single rational reason for which the predestined gentlemen of the banking industry should continue to be the only one who use a "magic potion" and reward themselves thanks to some unwritten rules?

If you are reading this, if you are honest and sincere, and you have enough will and knowledge, if you understand what alternative currencies are and you comprehend what type of possibilities can open up, then maybe you are the one, manager for granting incentives for creation of energy efficient systems and products that we are looking for.

The contract "Humanitarian Funds" between organization Jupiter Project and Crom Alternative Exchange Association, is an example of how simple and fast, something like that can be accomplished, and on a much bigger level than just Croatia...
