The construction of seven solar power plants with a combined installed capacity of 257 MW is planned in Croatia, according to applications submitted to the Ministry of Environmental Protection and Energy. The two power plants with a total capacity of 95 MW planned by Croatian power utility Hrvatska Elektroprivreda (HEP) alone would increase Croatia’s total installed solar capacity almost six times from 61 MW currently.

The new solar photovoltaic (PV) power plants are planned near the cities of Benkovac, Trilj, and Novalja, as well as in the municipality of Klis, read the applications for the evaluation of the need for environmental impact assessment submitted to the Ministry by six companies in July and August.

Three solar power plants are planned in the vicinity of the City of Benkovac.

The 38 MW Kolarina solar power plant would cover ​62 hectares and the expected production of electricity is 64.2 GWh per year. The application was submitted by SE Kolarina. The 60 MW Benkovac power plant would span ​100 hectares, with the application submitted by Aureus Solis. The expected generation of electricity is not specified. The third, 41 MW Raštević solar PV plant would cover 66 hectares, while the expected production is 69.5 GWh. The application was submitted by SE Raštević.

RP Global Projekti plans to build an 18 MW Novalja solar power plant on the island of Pag with the expected annual production of 18.5 MWh.

The Pometeno Brdo (50 MW), Tijarica (20 MW) and Tarabnik (30 MW) solar PV plants are planned in the Splitsko-Podravska County. The Pometeno Brdo power plant would span 88 hectares and the expected production of electricity is 95 GWh, while the application was submitted by the company ENCRO ZD2.

The Tiarica and Tarabnik power plants will cover 82 hectares and produce 95 GWh, reads the application submitted by Vrtača.

Similar applications have already been submitted by HEP for the construction of two 95 MW solar power plants. HEP intends to invest EUR 100 million in solar energy by 2023.
