Is there electricity without coal in Serbia? Whereas, in the European Union, the year 2020 will be remembered as the first year in which renewable energy sources dominated the production of electricity, according to the recently published study of the Energy Community, Serbia has the negative distinction of being the country that incites “dirty” energy more than any other country in the region.
Judging by announcements from Europe at least, but also the leading European banks which finance energy projects, we will have to give up on the fossil fuels. Some steps, however tentative, have been made. Energy and investments in energy infrastructure are increasingly discussed through the prism of RES in Serbia.
It is therefore not surprising that the list of investments in public utility infrastructure and energy that drew the most attention from eKapija’s readers features those pertaining to wind farms, solar power plants and alternative fuel production facilities.1.
