A renewable and low-carbon energy source, water is a priority development focus for the GEN Group, which is why we are actively involved in the construction of hydroelectric power plants on the lower course of the River Sava. This way we are acting on our commitment to expand our production portfolio based around clean energy sources.
The construction of a chain of five hydroelectric power plants on the lower course of the River Sava (Boštanj, Arto - Blanca, Krško, Brežice, Mokrice) will more than double the production of base load power on the Sava, and to a certain extent, peak load as well. The chain of HPPs, which is scheduled to be completed in phases by 2018, will make up 21% of the total electricity output of all Slovenia's hydroelectric power plants. It is estimated to cover 6% of the country's total demand for electricity.
