This paper analyses the current state of the renewable energy in Croatia and proposes what can be done to speed up the process of transition towards the increase in consumption of renewable energy in Croatia. The process of transition is analyzed from the perspective of three main participants who are relevant for the process: academic researches, government as policy makers and investors. The paper finds that the academic research has done a significant progress towards renewable energies and has thoroughly researched many opportunities for renewable energies in Croatia, but lack of clearly defined government policies has hindered investors and new projects. In several cases the policies are obsolete or undefined. There is a need for fast and focused government action. Because of the short time span, large scale strategies should be avoided and project-focused policies should be implemented. This paper proposes several actions which could be implemented in a short time span to make the Croatian transition towards renewable energy faster.
