    Uzbekistan Solar Market small

    /12th November 2019, RENEWABLE MARKET WATCHTM/ The first wind and solar auctions are expected in Serbia in 2020. The projects that have already been started under a feed-in tariff mechanism will be completed under the existing regulations. According to the proposed amendments, incentive measures for privileged power producers would be given in the form of a premium, calculated as the difference between the price, with which the renewable energy producer has won the auction, and the market price of electricity. Furthermore, net metering for renewable energy is currently under consideration by the Ministry of Mining and Energy of Serbia. The country aims to cover 27% of its electricity demand with renewables by 2020, up from a target of 21.2% previously. Government plans assumed Serbia to add 1,092MW of installed renewable energy capacity by 2020, however at the end of 2018 if we exclude hydropower (most of which is large scale) the total cumulative installed renewable capacity in Serbia is only 399MW, according to calculations of the research department of Renewable Market Watch™. The biggest renewable energy progress in the country between 2015 and 2018 was due to wind energy projects.
