Maja Pokrovac: The South of Croatia Will Produce Power at Lower Prices Than the North
“Renewables, in sharp contrast to fossil fuels, have defeated COVID-19, as they are the only technology that recorded an increase last year. We could say that renewables have been ‘immune’ to COVID-19,” said Fatih Birol, the Executive Director of the International Energy Agency (IEA), earlier this year (MORE). But how successful was 2020 for the area of renewable energy sources (RES) in Croatia? How much renewable capacity was added in 2020 and how much is expected to be added this year, and how many RES projects are currently still in the pipeline? Energetika.NET raised these questions during a recent video interview with Maja Pokrovac, director of the Renewable Energy Sources of Croatia Association (Obnovljivi izvori energije Hrvatske). In the interview, we also tackled, among others, Croatia’s application of the premium model of stimulating production from RES, as well as green hydrogen as an opportunity for the country.
