Slovenia’s electricity feed-in support scheme for renewable energy sources and high-efficiency cogeneration power plants included 3,920 facilities with an overall capacity of 433 MW at the end of last year, power market operator Borzen reported. The volume includes 8.9 MW of the TE-TOL combined heat and power (CHP) plant.  One year before there were 3,767 units with 516 MW, including TE-TOL’s 113 MW.

The 232 plants that entered the system last year include 141 new facilities with a total capacity of 16.38 MW, while the remainder is producers which changed ownership or support type from classic feed in or feed-in premium. There were 97 fossil-fuelled CHP units with 13.18 MW and 16 photovoltaic facilities with 700 kW among the new entrants. In comparison, in 2014 there were 98 solar power units with 8.9 MW and 87 fossil fuel plants with total capacity of 8.84 MW.

Support payments increased by 12% on the year to EUR 147 million excluding value added tax, on a rise in production by 8% to 980.8 GWh, after rising by 10% and 13%, respectively, in 2014.

The bulk of subsidies in 2014 went to solar PV plants – EUR 68.1 million on a share in power production of 27%, followed by fossil fuel units – EUR 35.5 million for generating 34.5% of power. Biogas and wood biomass plants received subsidies of EUR 17.9 million and EUR 17.4 million, respectively, for 13% and 12.2% of electricity produced. Hydropower plants in the system generated 12.2% of overall power, but received only EUR 7.26 million.
