The Ministry of Infrastructure is organising four consultation rounds as a broad debate about the Energy Concept of Slovenia, before the government adopts the document in October of next year, according to Danijel Levičar, head of the ministry’s Energy Directorate, portal Trajnostna energija said. He stressed such an important document cannot be produced in rush, without adequate professional basis, particular numbers and a wide public consensus. The parliament should pass the concept by the end of 2017.

More than 1,000 proposals were submitted after the concept blueprint was presented last year, the ministry said. They came from seven hundred individuals and 53 organizations, including energy companies, state administration, different parts of the non-governmental sector, science and research institutions and trade unions. Levičar said key topics are the availability of sources, electricity generation, heating and transport.

There were 20 presentations from last June, and minister Peter Gašperčič said consultations continue throughout this year. At the same time, the Energy Union process is ongoing and the documents need to be harmonized, he said and underscored that European targets were included in the concept.
