» Croatia raises incentives to boost renewable…
Croatia will this month increase incentive fees for renewable energy producers in an attempt to boost the share of clean energy, although this will result in slightly higher electricity bills for households.
Energy Minister Tomislav Ćorić told a cabinet meeting on Thursday (31 August) that “the average monthly electricity bill will be 22.90 kuna (€3.09) higher. This is the first such correction for energy production from renewable sources in the last four years”.
Croatia’s Energy Market Operator (HROTE) will implement new quotas and tariffs for eligible clean energy producers. Prime Minister Andrej Plenković said the price increase for consumers is linked to commitments taken earlier to promote renewable usage.
