By 2020, Serbia will have 700 MW of power from RES, the assistant to the minister of energy, Milos Banjac, announced today.
He said this at the opening of the conference “Open Talk: New Possibilities of Sustainable Development of Renewable Energy Sources in Serbia – The Closing Conference of the UNDP/GEF Project of Removing Obstacles to Accelerated Development of Biomass Market in Serbia” at the Chamber of Commerce of Serbia.
– The main result of the project is that the construction of six biogas facilities was subsidized in Serbia. In 2014, when the project began, we had only 5 MW from biogas facilities, and now the project is ending with six new ones, with a total installed power of 6.3 MW – Banjac said.
He said that the potential in this area has been increased by 130%.
– Furthermore, an electronic database, that is, a market, was developed in cooperation with the Chamber of Commerce of Serbia and numerous gatherings were organized, where investors learned how to apply for the funds and develop their projects – Banjac said.
