The National Assembly of the Republic of Serbia has adopted the Law on Amendments to the Law on the Use of Renewable Energy Sources, which enables the introduction of new capacities for the production of electrical energy from renewable sources to the electrical energy system in a way that will not jeopardize the security of its operations, announced the Ministry of Mining and Energy.

To clarify, the adopted amendments resolve the issue of a large number of requests for connecting new solar power plants and wind farms, whose required capacity for connection has been increased from 4.8 GW to 20 GW in the past two years, which is two and a half times more than the total capacity of all power plants in Serbia, it is said on the website of the Government of Serbia.

That kind of capacity exceeds the possibilities for the balancing of the electrical energy system, which caused worry at the system operator (Elektromreza Srbije) about the operations of the electrical energy system, so the amendments to the law solve the problem by enabling the system operator to delay the connection of power plants to the system if it is shown, in a transparent procedure of the preparation of the plan of the development of the transfer system, that there are not enough reserves for the balancing, while also leaving the investors with the possibility of avoiding the delay of the connection, if they secure an additional balancing capacity on their own or through another participant in the market.
