CROATIA RENEWABLE INCENTIVES

In Croatia, electricity from renewable sources is promoted through a feed-in tariff and loans. Renewable energy sources for heating purposes are not promoted by the state.

The access of electricity from RES to the grid is regulated by the general legislation on energy and follows the principle of non-discrimination. Electricity from RES is subject to special provisions only in case of wind power plants. CROATIA RENEWABLE INCENTIVES

There are currently no policy instruments for supporting the development of RES in place in Croatia.
