Subsidies provided by the Slovenian government to green power producers rose by 10 % on the year to EUR 130.88 million in 2014, according to electricity market operator Borzen’s data, SeeNews portal reported.

Slovenia’s electricity feed-in support scheme for renewable energy sources and high-efficiency cogeneration (CHP) power plants included 3,767 power plants with a combined installed capacity of 516 MW, Borzen said in a statement posted on its website. Their total electricity production increased by an annual 13 % to 907.1 GWh.

A total of 348 power plants joined the system last year, including 205 new entrants with a combined installed capacity of 23.9 MW. The rest were plants where there was a change in the ownership or support type. The new entrants included 98 solar PV plants with a combined installed capacity of 8.9 MW and 87 fossil-fuel high-efficiency CHP ones with a combined installed capacity of 8.8 MW.

The bulk of the subsidies in 2014 went to solar PV plants – EUR 62.6 million, followed by fossil fuel plants – EUR 27.7 million. Biogas and wood biomass plants received subsidies of EUR 15.8 million and 14 million, respectively.
