BELGRADE (Serbia), December 12 (SeeNews) – Slovakia’s Green Energy plans to invest 30 million euro ($38.7 million) in developing solar and wind energy projects in Serbia's autonomous province of Vojvodina, the provincial government said on Wednesday.
Green Energy has signed a memorandum of understanding with the provincial secretariat for energy and mineral resources which sets the framework for preparation of renewable energy projects in the Republic of Serbia, the Vojvodina government said in a statement on its website.
Most of the projects are related to the use of solar energy for electricity generation, Green Energy director, Tomas Lacko, said at the signing ceremony.
The company has also signed cooperation agreements with the Vojvodina municipalities of Sremska Mitrovica, Beocin and Odzaci which had allocated land for 15 renewable energy projects with total installed capacity of 15 megawatts. Tomas Lacko said he expected construction permits for these projects to be obtained next year.
In addition to photovoltaic projects, Green Energy is preparing a project for construction of wind farms in the municipality of Vrsac, the Vojvodina government said.
Seventeen projects of the company are underway in Serbia, with 10 of them in the northern province of Vojvodina.
