Centre of Energy Alternatives SLOVAKIA PRACTICAL EXPERIENCE Daniel Szabo Center of Energy Alternatives october 2007
Centre of Energy Alternatives Centrum of Energy Alternatives CEAs target is to efective influence the developement in RES sector to meet following criteria: Energy relevance Economical Enviromental CEA members : environmental organisations, RES developers, independent experts
Centre of Energy Alternatives GENERAL PARAMETERS Possibilities in Slovakia : Locations with average wind speeds over 6.5 m/s in HH Stabile Grid with capacity for wind power around 1GW Current tariff 9 euro c per 1 kWh Expected installation till 2015 : 650 MW
Centre of Energy Alternatives BARRIERS Political No political relevant subject supporting wind energy Strategy of Energy Security targets : „ blocking develpements in wind energy „ Administrative Strategy of Energy Security targets : „ blocking develpements in wind energy „ EIA procedures, requireing up to 5 years of research in fields like influece of earth cables on microorganisms etc. General Construction and building permit situation Economical Tariff guarantee only 1 year, maximal 5 years No existing track record experience
Centre of Energy Alternatives Economical Developement companies in SK are not conected teuropean companies and operate with limited budgets Underfinanced developement leads to overexceeding of future operationg costs Professional Limited experience with wind park operations Most of developement works started 2 years ago Market acces strategy Focus on maximizing the size of park and number of projects – currently officialy requested grid acces over 4000 MW - „ PAPER TIGERS“ BARRIERS ON THE SIDE OF DEVELOPERS
Centre of Energy Alternatives MAPS Following maps have been prepared by State Nature Protection Agency to provide general information about suitability of locations for wind parks developements. They reflect standards agreed in coordination with CEA experts.
