Summary/Abstract: The study examines the significance of the contribution of the 2007 – 2013 Regional Development Operational Program (OPRD), co-financed by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF), to energy efficiency of buildings. The framework of the analysis is based on a logic model and the methodology also includes a unit cost analysis. The article presents the overall progress on energy efficiency at European and national level and provides conclusions regarding the progress, contribution, and efficiency of energy efficiency measures funded under the program. The overall conclusion of the study is that in spite of the good absorption rate of OPRD 2007 – 2013, the ERDF is not used efficiently; the contribution of the program to the energy efficiency of buildings is not significant; and the design of the program and the specific energy efficiency measures do not include sufficiently specific and justified objectives.
