Rooftop solar power plants set up by houses and also companies in Serbia were a rarity until a few months ago, however the adoption of a proper governing framework enabled citizens to produce green energy for self-consumption.

Treatments have been simplified, so it is no longer essential to take 20 actions, yet just two for customers to authorize contracts with supply business EPS Snabdevanje, Luković explained at a panel discussion called "(Un)made use of possibility of Serbia in renewable energy," organized by Beta news agency together with the European Climate Foundation.

Serbia currently has greater than 370 registered prosumers with a total capacity 5.7 MW, as well as one more 100 MW in the process of linking to the grid, which is taken care of by DSO Elektrodistribucija Srbije, said Luković.

In her words, a solar boom is occurring in Serbia, which is why the Ministry is preparing adjustments to the Decree on the Criteria, Conditions, and Method of Billing Between Prosumers as well as Suppliers. The intention is to more streamline all the actions for connecting to the network.
