The use of solar energy for the production of electricity is taking hold in Serbia. In the last few months, households and firms have installed around 360 rooftop photovoltaic power plants with a total capacity of 5.7 MW while another 100 MW is in the procedure.

Rooftop solar power plants installed by households and companies in Serbia were a rarity until a few months ago, but the adoption of an appropriate regulatory framework enabled citizens to produce green energy for self-consumption.

Natalija Luković, Assistant Minister of Mining and Energy, noted the adoption of the Law on Renewable Energy Sources, which enabled citizens and businesses to become prosumers, was initiated by her ministry.

The ministry is preparing to change the decree on prosumers

She said the new law enables citizens and firms to participate in the energy transition. Procedures have been simplified, so it is no longer necessary to take 20 steps, but only two for consumers to sign contracts with supply company EPS Snabdevanje, Luković pointed out at a panel discussion called “(Un)utilized potential of Serbia in renewable energy,” organized by Beta news agency in cooperation with the European Climate Foundation.

Serbia currently has more than 370 registered prosumers with a total capacity 5.7 MW, and another 100 MW in the process of connecting to the grid, which is managed by DSO Elektrodistribucija Srbije, said Luković.

In her words, a solar boom is happening in Serbia, which is why the Ministry is preparing changes to the Decree on the Criteria, Conditions, and Method of Billing Between Prosumers and Suppliers. The intention is to further simplify all the steps for connecting to the network.
