Slovenia’s electricity feed-in support scheme for renewable energy sources and high-efficiency cogeneration power plants included 3,899 facilities with an overall capacity of 416 MW at the end of June, power market operator Borzen reported. In comparison, last year was finished with 21 units more and 433 MW. The volume includes 8.9 MW of the TE-TOL combined heat and power (CHP) plant.

There were 59 plants entering the system in the reporting period. Total electricity production within the support system increased by 4.6% from the first half of last year, to 541.8 GWh. Support payments excluding value added tax were reduced by EUR 150,000 and the average support dropped from 14.85 to 14.17 euro cents per kilowatt hour.

The bulk of subsidies in the six months through June, similar to the comparable period of 2015, went to photovoltaic plants – EUR 33.1 million on a share in power production of 43.12%, followed by fossil fuel units – EUR 18.8 million for generating 34.32% of power. Biogas and wood biomass plants received subsidies of EUR 8.78 million and EUR 10.5 million, respectively, for 12.45% and 13.83% of electricity produced. Hydropower plants in the system generated 14.87% of overall power, but received only EUR 5.05 million, authorities said.
