Investments in existing generation capacity aim to increase the value of key strategic generation facilities while investment in new generation capacities and technologies seeks diversification of energy supplies to ensure long-term reliability and availability of the HEP Group's generation mix.
In both cases the investments must meet the conditions of supply security, competitiveness and sustainability.
At the same time the investments in renewable energy sources are at the center of the long-term development goal based on the sustainability concept and active environmental and climate changes managament.
Hereby, we present the following:
Investments in the distribution network infrastructure are conducted for the purpose of maintaining the long-term property value, fuel supply stability and development of its market for the benefit of all users. HEP ODS 8(HEP DSO) upgrades the existing distribution network and builds a new one in order to meet new electricity demand and connect of new clients, especially in large cities, tourist and industrial zones. Recovery of the voltage conditions, introduction of modern meters for consumption recording and harmonization with new standards is continuously conducted through several individual investment programs.
Apart from the construction of new sections of the hot-water and steam lines, HEP-Toplinarstvo (HEP District Heating) conducts multi-year rehabilitation of the main parts of hot-water network in the cities of Zagreb, Osijek and Sisak. Rehabilitation is conducted by use of the technology of pre-insulated pipes, and will result in decreased heat losses, increased reliability supply, decreased consumption and lowers of pollutant emissions into the air.
