Croatia plans to tender 2.3 GW of renewables capacity
Croatia has introduced a new law to tender 2,265 MW of renewable capacity. The Croatian authorities have allocated 1,075W of solar capacity, including 210 MW for solar projects ranging in size from 50 kW to 500 kW, 240 MW for solar installations with capacities between 500 kW and 10 MW, and 625 MW for PV power plants exceeding 10 MW. In addition, up to 1,050 MW of wind capacity will be offered in the tenders (project over 3 MW) and the remaining 140 MW will be shared between hydropower (24 MW), biomass (41 MW), biogas (45 MW), geothermal (20 MW) and innovative projects (10 MW). The auctions are expected to be held in 2020, and the selected project will be awarded a feed-in price premium on top of spot market prices.
According to Croatia’s NECP (December 2019), the share of renewables in the final energy consumption should be raised to 36.4% in 2030 (64% for electricity, 37% for heating and cooling, and 13% in transport). It should reach 65.6% by 2050 (Energy Development Strategy to 2030 with a view on 2050, 2019). As of May 2020, renewables accounted for 58% of Croatia’s total generation, including 43% of hydro and 13% of wind.
Enerdata has developed a market research service to screen, monitor and analyse the development of power generation assets.
Power Plant Tracker offers an interactive database and a powerful search engine covering power plants worldwide – including both installed and planned capacities for renewables and fossil fuels.
The European renewable report focuses on the different renewable energies for each country in Europe.
It covers the different support schemes used to promote renewable energy in for major sources of renewable energy: hydroelectricity, wind, solar, liquid biofuels for transportation, geothermal and oceanic sources (wave, tidal and thermal).
