The Ministry of Mining and Energy of Serbia is receiving offers through May 8 for some of the works in switching district heating plants from fossil fuels to biomass. Germany’s KfW and Switzerland have allocated funds for the overhaul in six municipal units.

As part of a financial cooperation agreement that Serbia signed with Germany and Switzerland, district heating networks in Priboj and Mali Zvornik in Serbia are about to get new substations as they are switching to biomass. The program called Promotion of Renewable Energies – Developing the Biomass Market in Serbia is worth EUR 26.75 million. It covers six municipal units.
