Hydro energy

A renewable energy source

 

Electricity from low-carbon and renewable hydropower is generated by the companies Savske elektrarne Ljubljana (SEL) and Hidroelektrarne na Spodnji Savi (HESS).

Electricity generation from this particular source holds a special place in the GEN Group's production portfolio. Thanks to remarkable water levels of the River Sava, our hydroelectric power plants contributed 17% to the GEN Group's total electricity production output in 2016.

SEL generates electricity in the following hydroelectric power plants:

  • Moste HPP,
  • Mavčiče HPP,
  • Medvode HPP, and
  • Vrhovo HPP.

HESS generates electricity in the following hydroelectric power plants:

  • Boštanj HPP,
  • Arto - Blanca HPP, and
  • Krško HPP.
