Dejan Paravan will lead Slovenia’s state-owned GEN Energija, parent company of power utility GEN Group.

The Supervisory Board of GEN Energija appointed Dejan Paravan to serve a four-year term of office as the company’s CEO, starting on November 1.

The company said the regular term of current CEO Blaž Košorok expires on October 31.

Since March, Paravan has been serving as a member of the Management Board of GEN-I, a subsidiary of GEN Group.

GEN Group plans to accelerate investments in renewables and nuclear energy

According to the Supervisory Board, Paravan’s first priority will be to address the energy crisis and ensure the smooth functioning of all production facilities, and the reliable supply of electricity to Slovenian consumers.

“Under his leadership, the group will pursue the mission of becoming the main promoter and implementer of the transition to a self-sustaining and carbon-free power grid. The latter implies accelerated investments in renewable energy sources and nuclear energy in Slovenia,” the board said.

Part of the GEN-I from the beginning

Paravan is specialized in the electricity market. He has long held managing roles in GEN Group. He studied at the Faculty of Electrical Engineering in Ljubljana, where he earned his doctorate in electrical engineering in 2004.

Early in his career, he was responsible for electricity supply and trading projects in various companies, which marked the beginning of the development of GEN-I.

He served as a member of the Management Board, Executive Sales Director, Director of Strategic Innovation, and Managing Director of the subsidiaries in Zagreb, Vienna, and Milan.

GEN Energija is the parent of GEN Group, owner of Nuklearna Elektrarna Krško (NEK), Savske Elektrarne Ljubljana (SEL), Hidroelektrarne na Spodnji Savi (HESS) and Termoelektrarna Brestanica (TEB), which operate nuclear, thermal and hydropower plants.
