Europe 2020: Renewable Energy Plans - Simpler investment rules to boost renewable sector

SLOVENIA: Slovenia missed the June 30 deadline to file its National Renewable Energy Action Plan to meet the EU's 2020 renewables target, but the main goals of the Slovenian energy policy for renewable energy are: 25.3% of final energy consumption from renewable sources, with targets of 32.8% of the heating and cooling sector, 39.4% of electricity and 10.7% of the transport sector. Other targets include the slowing down of final energy consumption and the implementation of energy-efficiency measures.

Elements to encourage the achievement of the 2020 goals include continued support schemes for electricity production from renewables, introduction of a mandatory share of renewable energy in district heating systems, simplifying of procedures for investments in renewables, introduction of incentives and appropriate financial mechanisms, and measures for research and development and education and training.

Currently, the guaranteed purchase price for electricity from renewables is EUR95.38/MWh. But there is no installed wind capacity and no wind projects in the pipeline.

By 2020, the installed renewable energy capacity will reach almost 1.7GW, with 105MW from wind. Production will total 6,126GWh a year, of which 190GWh will come from wind. The guaranteed purchase price for electricity produced from wind power will be EUR95.38/MWh.
