According to State Electricity Regulatory Commission’s data, 16.3 TWh of electric power was generated in 2013 in Bosnia and Herzegovina, of which 43.7% came from hydro systems, Fena agency said.

The rest of the production is from thermal power plants, except for the 1.47% that was generated in smaller and industrial facilities, including from other renewables, the report said.

Sarajevo’s Energis – Center for Education and Raising Awareness of Energy Efficiency – said this was clear evidence the country is in the world top 10 in production of energy from renewable sources. However, the organization stressed that BiH has potential for energy from other renewables, and that several solar plants and biomass systems have been launched in the past years, as well as one wind park, while several other aeolian projects are being prepared.
