Last weekend, one of the worst storms on record severely disrupted everyday life in Slovenia, affecting numerous families, public institutions and the economy. Rectifying the consequences of that natural disaster will require massive efforts for the foreseeable future in large parts of the country. The GEN Group, which performs activities that are fundamental for the functioning of the country through the production and supply of electricity, has been confronted with extreme conditions on the Sava River. After hydropower plants, with the exception of two on the upper course of the river, were gradually shut down on Friday, all power plants have been back in operation since Monday. The Krško Nuclear Power Plant (NEK) has been functioning stably and at full power at all times. More...

Ljubljana, 15.03.2023
Mag. Aleksander Mervar, the CEO of ELES, dr. Tomaž Štokelj, the CEO of HSE, and dr. Dejan Paravan, the CEO of GEN Energija, are in agreement: The measures taken by the government and energy companies in order to deal with the energy crisis have worked, the situation is under control. However, these difficult conditions are by no means over. We must, collectively at all levels, continue with the measures, as well as with the efficient use of energy. But not only that: in the long term, Slovenia urgently needs investments in new low-carbon production units and renewable energy sources, as the more than 30% average import dependence that marked the year 2022 is completely unacceptable.

Krško, 19.07.2021
On 19 July 2021, GEN energija received an Energy Permit from the Ministry of Infrastructure for the JEK2 project. The receipt of that Permit represents an important milestone on the path to the final decision to increase nuclear production capacities in Slovenia. As previous studies of the justification of the project have shown, JEK2 is a crucial and feasible project for the future reliable supply of domestically produced electricity to Slovenia. The project facilitates an effective response to the challenges of the transition to green electricity and the achievement of the goal of climate neutrality by 2050. More...
