Frequently asked questions

?

I would like to produce electricity from solar collectors. At what price does HEP purchase such electricity?

 

As from July 1, 2007 a new legislation is in force concerning the use of renewable energy sources (RES) and feeding of such energy into the electric network. Under the new legislation HEP is no longer required to purchase RES-produced electricity and a purchase contract should instead be signed with HROTE. Also, any RES producer can become an eligible producer and get a special purchase price, which for solar power plants is 2.10-3.40 kuna per kWh fed into the electric network, depending on the installed capacity of the power plant. The procedure for becoming an eligible producer is described in secondary legislation, and the competent institutions are Croatian Energy Regulatory Agency, Ministry of Economy, Labour and Entrepreneurship, HROTE and HEP-ODS (for connection to the distribution network).

   
? I plan to undertake a biomass power project and would like to cooperate with HEP OIE in the process. What are, if any, site selection requirements for a power plant (up to 5 MW)?  Should any contract or precontract be made with HEP  for the purpose of obtaining loan guarantees?
 

Since the installed capacity in question is low (up to 5 MW),  the project is more suitable for entrepreneurial investment than for HEP to enter. As from July 1, 2007 a new legislation  is in force concerning the use of renewable energy sources (RES) and feeding of such energy into the electric network.  Under the new legislation HEP is no longer required to purchase RES-produced electricity and a purchase contract should instead be signed with HROTE. Accordingly, no precontract with HEP is necessary for electricity purchase. The only contact that must be made with HEP is  a contact with the local distribution regarding connection of the power plant to the electric network. Any RES producer can become an eligible producer and get a special purchase price. For a biomass power plant this price is from 0.83 to 1.20 kuna per kWh fed into the electric network. The procedure for becoming an eligible producer is described in secondary legislation, and the competent institutions are Croatian Energy Regulatory Agency, Ministry of Economy, Labour and Entrepreneurship, HROTE and HEP-ODS (for connection to the distribution network).

I am interested in investing in renewable energy sources. I would like to meet with you to present you my ideas and projects.

 

Please send details of your project to: hep-oie@hep.hr. Project description should include the following: description of the company (investor) and references on similar projects, site description,  description of the technology to be used, installed capacity and expected production, expected investment level, expected point of connection to the electric network, any state or local government approvals. Should the project prove interesting, we will arrange a meeting.

Our company manufactures equipment for wind turbines and we would like to present to you a new technology which would improve the efficiency of wind turbines.

 

HEP OIE is not engaged in manufacture of wind turbines and has no influence on the technology used within wind turbines, but it will procure them as finished products for its future wind power plants.  

   
? There is a brook/strong wind/good insolation on my land and I would like to use it to produce electricity. Who should I contact?
 

For all information we suggest you to contact the Ministry of Economy, Labour and Entrepreneurship (Energy and Mining Directorate), a local development agency or Environmental Protection and Energy Efficiency Fund.
