Guest post: Ombla must be protected, not flooded!

The project promoter of the Ombla hydropower plant in Dubrovnik, Croatia is still stubbornly pushing the project forward. A presentation yesterday of a new nature impact assessment did not offer answers to a range of outstanding questions, including the project's economic feasibility, impacts on locals and more.


Unpaid coal bill: Romanian coal exports to Serbia marred by corruption

Proizvodna crna rupa regije

Predstavnici nevladine organizacije BankWatch network prošle su sedmice u Sarajevu predstavili studiju o dugoročnoj ekonomskoj održivosti izgradnje novih elektroenergetskih kapaciteta za izvoz struje u zemljama zapadnog Balkana, među kojima je, dakle, i BiH. Ovu su studiju uradili stručnjaci s Univerziteta u Groningenu (University of Groningen, Groningen Centre of Energy Law, Dept. of Law & Economics), a njeni rezultati pokazuju da će - ukoliko zemlje zapadnog Balkana ostvare planirano proširenje kapaciteta - regija imati 2024. godine čak 56 posto viška električne energije!

Croatia coal plant vote unlikely to derail project

Source: , Monitor Global Outlook

SIGNIFICANCE: Croatia, like several countries in the region, is upgrading coal-fired power plants to boost electricity security. This has encountered opposition from environmental groups and local people.

IMPACTS
SOCIAL: Environmental concerns about coal power and other energy projects are real, but have partly gained momentum due to broader political issues.
POLITICAL: The government wants to push ahead with energy projects, but faces rising opposition as a closely-fought election nears.

Hoćemo li se nasukati?

Zapadni Balkan će do 2024. godine imati 56 posto viška električne energije, zbog čega postoji opasnost od nasukanih sredstava - nasukanih elektrana, upozorava Studija Univerziteta u Groningenu. Za BiH je prihvatljivo, smatra bivši direktor Elektroprivrede BiH Amer Jerlagić, da podmiri svoje potrebe i ostvari višak električne energije od 20 do 25 posto

Drugi blok termoelektrane za Crnu Goru neće biti isplativ

Crna Gora ne može sebi priuštiti da troši novac koji nema na energetske objekte koji neće biti isplativi, kazala je Galop

Proizvodnja električne energije iz drugog bloka termoelektrane u Pljevljima neće biti isplativa i to je vjerovatno razlog zbog čega italijanski partner u Elektroprivredi, kompanija A2A, ne želi da ga gradi, kazala je ekspertkinja za energetiku međunarodne organizacije CEE Bankwatch Network Pipa Galop.

BiH će imati najveće viškove struje

BANJALUKA - Ambicije zemalja zapadnog Balkana u izvozu električne energije mogu se pokazati kao vrlo rizične, te se predviđa da će u slučaju ispunjenja planiranih scenarija regija imati višak od čak 56 odsto struje, dok će zemlje s najviše energije za izvoz biti BiH i Srbija.

Pokazalo je to najnovije istraživanje, koje su za potrebe organizacije "CEE Bankwatch" sproveli Univerzitet u Groningenu i konsultantska kuća "Advisory House".

Exhibition brings coal-affected communities in Colombia and Croatia a step closer together

A photo exhibition in Croatia is connecting the dots between communities in Colombia and the Istrian coast that are negatively affected by coal.


[Campaign update] 92 percent of public consultation respondents against Plomin C coal power plant

Almost all respondants to a consultation on the Plomin power plant do not want a new unit running on coal.


Western Balkans electricity plans: where will all that power go?

Western Balkan countries have ambitious plans to increase their electricity generation over the next years. But what will happen if they all become a regional energy hub? Will there be a demand for all the available electricity?
