HEP to supply two Serbian cities
A few weeks ago HEP announced that the company will supply electricity to the Serbian cities of Valjevo and Kraljevo for public lighting and traffic lights.
The electricity market in Serbia has been liberalized since January 1, 2015, with all buyers free to choose their supplier. However, EPS continues to command a 98% market share.
In Serbia so far, HEP has an electricity supply deal only with Slovenian manufacturer Cimos.
HEP signed contracts in June with Valjevo and August with Kraljevo, after winning a tendering procedure.
