Let us remind that Zorana Mihajlovic, the deputy prime minister and minister of mining and energy of Serbia, announced back in December the preparation of a special law on renewable energy sources, considering Serbia’s great potential in that area.
In a statement for Tanjug, Mihajlovic explained that the regulation on RES was something entirely new, because the field was regulated by the Law on Energy at that time.
Serbia has great potential in biomass, geothermal springs and solar energy, but has obviously not utilized it sufficiently, and the law is an attempt to create the environment in which RES will be used to a much greater extent, she said.
Mihajlovic explained that the feed-in tariffs system would change and that auctions for energy from renewable sources would be introduced.
She pointed out that special attention would be paid to cogeneration, that is, the simultaneous production of electrical and heating energy, citing the efficiency of such a process as the main argument in favor of it.
