New rules for photovoltaic in Slovakia

logo scritta.jpg

The President of Slovakia, Ivan Gasparovic, has signed an amendment to the very recent photovoltaic legislation. New amendment is imposing even more rigid criteria for access to the production of this alternative form of energy. In practice, all producers will have to obtain the "license" for plant to be inserted in grid of any power. This was not necessary before for projects below a power output of 1 Mw. Previous legislation had given rise to a variety of so called "projects photocopy" which actually had the same people as investors. On the other hand it had started a thriving "second market" in which they are now currently available numerous building sites for many small projects. The only remaining exception is the one of plants up to 100 Kw, to be used to deliver electricity directly to buildings.


Renewable energy sources in Slovakia accounted for 7.4 of the total gross energy consumption of the country last year. The head of the Economy Ministry's energy section, Jan Petrovic, said that the country aims to increase this proportion to 14 by 2020. He regards it as an ambitious but realistic goal.
