December 11, 2018 - Small hydropower plants (sHPPs), which are privileged electricity producers, will produce 94.8 gigawatt-hours of electricity next year, as stated in the Energy Balance Decision for 2019, which is ten percent more than the estimated achievement this year.

The plan, as highlighted in the document adopted by the Government at the session last week, is the sum of all SHP plans submitted by the concessionaires to the Ministry of Economy.

"In 2017, due to the dry season, 61 percent of the total plan was realized, while in this, due to favorable hydrological conditions, the plan was exceeded by 23 percent," Dnevne novine noted.

The total installed power of all SHPPs, which according to the registry of the Energy Regulatory Agency are 13, is 41.8 MWh.

The eligible electricity producer, besides SHP, is the Krnovo wind farm, whose electricity production for the next year is estimated at 201 gigawatt-hour, which is 20 percent above the achievement in 2018.

"Wind power plants in Krnovo in 2017, due to the late start of production, realized 48 percent of the planned. This year, the level of electricity produced in Krnovo was brought to 93 percent," said the energy balance.

The decision also plans that the electricity production from the wind farm on Mozura, whose commercial performance should start next year, will be 111.8 gigawatt-hours.
