In accordance with the law on renewable energy sources and high-efficiency cogeneration, HROTE, as leader of the ECO Balance Group for incentivized electricity production, started selling 30% of the energy produced on the CROPEX day-ahead and intraday markets at the beginning of 2019, the Croatian power exchange said.
This move was also enabled by changes to the law on renewable energy sources and high-efficiency cogeneration and changes to the decree on the establishment of a system of guarantees of origin.
