The Serbian state-owned power utility EPS has posted a tender for a decarbonisation analysis of its power production portfolio, the Serbian media reported last week.

According to the tender documentation, over 55% of greenhouse gas emissions in Serbia arise from the production of electricity, heat, fuel and processes at the country’s refineries, with power generation being the single largest culprit.

Since 70% of Serbia’s power is generated by burning domestic lignite in coal plants owned by EPS, the country’s energy transition and decarbonisation process will have the greatest impact on the utility’s business model, meaning that the company must optimise future investments in new and existing production facilities.

The tender documentation states that the decarbonisation analysis should provide long-term and optimal solutions for the use of lignite, as this is still a strategic resource that can ensure the country's energy independence. However, it also calls for an analysis of alternative production options such as hydropower and renewable energy sources.

The successful applicant will also be required to analyse the Serbian and regional wholesale electricity market to assess what impact the EU carbon border adjustment mechanism (CBAM) will have on EPS’s future operations.
