The Sunce na dlanu platform connecting investors and owners of facilities, buildings and houses interested in the installation of rooftop photovoltaic (PV) plants, will be operational at the beginning of June, local media reported.

The platform, developed by the North-West Croatia Regional Energy Agency (REGEA), SAP and Experta, will allow participation of the facilities and buildings not only from Croatia but from all over the region and Europe.

The platform will be similar to accommodation and taxi apps, in what will enable linking investors – ESCO companies, pension funds, entrepreneurs, and owners of facilities and buildings, which are also electricity consumers, in the private and public sectors.

REGEA Managing Director Julije Domac said the platform is not complicated for investors or roof owners, according to Jutarnji List.

A building owner is to enter the position, address, square meters and cost of energy consumption. Then, the platform provides an investor’s offer for the installation of a rooftop solar system, including the duration of a contract for the delivery of electricity, after which the plant becomes the property of the building owner, as well as the price of energy.

Domac said that the platform will be inaugurated with HRK 10 million worth of projects, adding that he anticipates the value of the projects to be increased to HRK 100 million within three months.

Health care facilities in the Krapinsko-Zagorska County, the Museum of Contemporary Art Zagreb, and two post offices are just some of the projects that will be on the platform once it is launched, Domac said.

He said the platform has already been successfully tested, with a rooftop PV plant for the Zabok hospital agreed.

The plant will have an installed capacity of 470 KW, the hospital will consume all the generated electricity and the electricity price will be 10% lower, Domac noted.

The Sunce na dlanu platform will represent a sort of information center that will contain a projects database, define contracts, ensure project preparation, and merging of projects into investment packages. The platform will also contain all contracts on investments.
