Renewable energy is energy obtained from natural resources that can be naturally replenished or renewed within a human lifespan, that is, the resource is a sustainable source of energy. Some natural resources, such as moving water, wind and sunshine, are not at risk of depletion from their use for energy production. Biomass, however, is a renewable resource only if its rate of consumption does not exceed its rate of regeneration.

MAIN GOALS FOR 2011
Much like in the previous years, in 2010 we continued to work on the strengthening of our image and visibility and to cooperate with both individuals and organizations from all tree sectors - civil, business and public.
The project which undoubtedly marked our last years activity was CROATIAN CENTER of RENEWABLE ENERGY SOURCES ( CCRES )A long-term goal of the CRECSS project was to achieve sustainable development and environmental protection by increasing the use of RENEWABLE ENERGY SOURCES.
As part of their contribution to the realization of that goal , the CCRES partners provided financial support ,whit their help we manage to organize forums and training for interested renewable energy community.
In addition to that , we organized public presentations and performances at various fairs which were aimed at raising the citizens level of awareness and interest for this field, and we also organized other activities related to the education and the raising of awareness concerning renewable energy sources.
One of CCRES main goals is to create a network and entice cooperation between all parties interested in issues concerning sustainable development, especially in the field of energetics.Therefore, CCRES is always ready to cooperate with all similar and complementary organizations.
We continued our years-long work on blogs and many portals about Renewable Energy.In accordance with the new trends on the internet and with the fast development of social networks, a CCRES fan page was created on Facebook and the number of its fans keeps increasing.

Head of association
A wide range of energy-producing technologies and equipment have been developed over time to take advantage of these natural resources. As a result, usable energy can be produced in the form of electricity, industrial heat, thermal energy for space and water conditioning, and transportation fuels.
With its large landmass and diversified geography,Croatia has an abundance of renewable resources that can be used to produce energy.
CCRES• was founded in 1988 as the non-profit European Association for Renewable Energy that conducts its work independently of political parties, institutions, commercial enterprises and interest groups,
• is dedicated to the cause of completely substituting for nuclear and fossil energy through renewable energy,
• regards solar energy supply as essential to preserve the natural resources and a prerequisite for a sustainable economy,
• acts to change conventional political priorities and common infrastructures in favor of renewable energy, from the local to the international level,
• brings together expertise from the fields of politics, economy, science, and culture to promote the entry of solar energy,
• provides the opportunity to play a part in the sociocultural movement for renewable energy by joining the association for everyone,
• considers full renewable energy supply a momentous and visionary goal – the challenge of the century to humanity.
