Yesterday’s consultation on the development plan of the power system of Slovenia, hosted by the Electrical Engineering Union of Slovenia (EZS) and the Eurelectric section at the EZS, was attended by well-known names in the Slovenian energy sector, including the chief executive officer of HSE, Tomaž Štokelj. He noted the need to build new production facilities, which will reduce the gap between the production of, and the need for, electricity. The plans of the HSE group are heading in this direction: the construction of additional solar power plants and wind farms and the exploitation of hydro and geothermal energy, while also swearing by new technologies in the long term.
“The planned coal phase-out and the expected growth of electricity consumption as a result of the transition from fossil fuels to electricity in transport, heating and industrial processes require accelerated investment in new electricity production facilities, and in flexibility resources, customer services and the electricity grid. If we want to achieve the set goals, we must use all available renewable energy sources, as well as nuclear energy and flexibility resources. The HSE Group, the largest producer of electricity from renewable sources and the spearhead of the green transition of the Slovenian energy sector, has major plans in all the listed areas, many of which have already started to be implemented. We are also developing at an accelerated pace new products and services that will also encourage end customers to go green,” added the chief executive officer of HSE.
