Energetika.NET’s latest video debate (in Slovene), which took place last week, focused on energy economics and vision, looking at the next steps for the Slovenian energy sector. This time, we were exclusively joined by members of the Slovenian Association for Energy Economics (SAEE), who recently had their monthly (online) meeting. The video debate featured the General Manager of Slovenia’s GEN energija, Martin Novšak, the General Manager of the Slovenian gas TSO Plinovodi and the President of the Energy Industry Chamber of Slovenia, Marjan Eberlinc, and the State Secretary at the Slovenian Ministry of Infrastructure, Blaž Košorok, who had just returned from the U.S. where the Slovenian minister, among other things, signed a memorandum on strategic civil-nuclear cooperation between the countries.

New sources, new technologies, and a fresh momentum
Eberlinc also mentioned the results of the analysis of the Slovenian energy sector for 2019, which were recently discussed by the management board of the Energy Industry Chamber of Slovenia, stressing that the results are very good and that the sector has proved to be robust and reliable especially in this last year, which has been characterised by extreme situations, resulting from the pandemic. This was seconded by Košorok and Novšak, with the latter pointing to a number of new projects that Slovenian energy companies are now getting ready to launch. Eberlinc added that members of the country’s Energy Industry Chamber are preparing or planning to prepare at least EUR 2.5 billion worth of projects, which is a sign that the country is “ambitiously embracing the new perspective”.
