The Croatian government has decided to increase the share of net delivered electricity generated by privileged producers sold on the Croatian Power Exchange (CROPEX) from 30% to 60% from January 1. The remaining 40% will be purchased by the suppliers at the regulated price.

It will be the second step toward full liberalization of the green energy market in Croatia. After two years of postponement, the government has made the first step in December 2018 by adopting a new law on renewable energy sources and the decree on the share of net supplied electricity from privileged producers. The government now changed only the decree.
