Abstract: Today with billions of tonnes of carbon emissions into the atmosphere, global temperature rise and great obstacles to further development of conventional energy sources, it is a must that due attention be given to a range of environmental-friendly energy technologies, too relevant in the Adriatic coastal regions. Implementation of energy efficiency and maximum use of renewable, are more appropriate options to resolve problem relevant to both the basic sectors (buildings, transports, energy production and urban systems) and improve/strengthen sustainable development capabilities. It is in this context that a brief description of some environmental-friendly energy technologies that can easily be replicated in the Adriatic coastal regions, will be presented. In addition, real-time strategies, working simultaneously, able to reduce traffic congestion, vehicle emissions, benefitting both users and non-users of the transport network in social, environmental and economic terms, will be another salient feature of present communication.

Keywords: sustainable socio-economic development; conventional energy sources; environmental-friendly energy technologies; good practices; cross-border development; congestion and pollutant emissions in the transport network; real-time strategies.
