Navitacum will be engaged in the preparation of projects for renewable energy sources, especially solar parks with an installed capacity of more than 50 MW, and attracting investors in this sector, PKS said in a press release. The participants of the meeting said major companies from Spain, Switzerland and the European Union are already interested to invest in Serbia.

The agreement was signed by Igor Popović, director of the Section for commerce at the chamber, and Francisco Gonzalez, director of Navitacum.

In cooperation with the relevant institutions, a study will be produced on the production capacities and the presence of renewable energy sources in Serbia, especially for solar energy, while PKS will help with advisory services and contacts, Popović said.
