Private utility Pelagonija Enerdži DOOEL, headquartered in Bitola, had its biogas-fuelled electric power plant registered in the national list of electricity-generating facilities that run on renewable sources, Build.mk portal reported.

The generator has an installed capacity of 2 MW and it is the second of the type in Macedonia, as a thermal power plant on biogas operated by Elektro Šarri DOOEL was registered in February by the Energy Regulatory Commission. The Pelagonija Enerdži plant is one of three planned for the cow farms operated by agricultural coop ZK Pelagonija JSC Bitola.

According to regulator’s data, the former Yugoslav republic has 96 photovoltaic facilities, 44 small hydro plants and one wind power unit. The listed power plants, including ones on biogas, have a yearly capacity of 287.8 GWh, the report said.
