Support schemes

In Slovenia, electricity generated from renewable energy is supported mainly through tender scheme. All production facilities connected to the grid after 22nd September 2014, can take part in the tender issued annually by the Slovenian Energy Agency. The operators of renewable energy plants connected to the grid before 22nd September 2014 may sell their electricity to the Slovenian power market operator Borzen at a "uniform annual price", i.e. the feed-in tariff (alternatively, they can opt for a premium tariff). Furthermore, in Slovenia public calls for subsidy applications are organised and loans are provided for projects in the field of renewable energy.
