Ensure access to affordable, reliable, sustainable, and modern energy for all.
The company also prioritized enhancing energy efficiency by expanding its portfolio of renewable energy sources, increasing the proportion of renewables in auxiliary consumption, installing solar panels at its filling stations, and implementing projects for CO2 disposal.
If we take 2012 as a reference year, in the period from 2012 to 2022 the Company achieved the total increase in energy efficiency of 33%.
In 2022 NIS initiated a pilot project to install solar panels at its filling stations. The first phase of the project involved installing solar panels at eight NIS Petrol and GAZPROM stations in Serbia. This initiative is expected to result in significant energy savings of approximately 300 Mwh, a reduction in carbon dioxide emissions by 375 tons per year, and the delivery of around 40 MW of power to the distribution network. The generated electricity will primarily power the filling stations, with any excess energy being fed back into the grid. If the initial phase proves successful, NIS plans to expand the installation of solar panels to other stations. Furthermore, NIS is exploring the possibility of installing solar generation facilities at the Pancevo Refinery, the Belgrade and Novi Sad offices, Jazak water plant and the Novi Sad tank farm. This will be another step towards business diversification and energy transition.
The Plandiste Wind Park Company, co-owned by NIS, is also dedicated to the principle of sustainable energy.
In 2022 the company fully optimized the Plandiste 1 wind farm project implementing new technologies and state-of-the-art high-power turbines.
In February 2022 the Plandiste local council approved the amendments to the detailed plan of the Plandiste 1 wind farm project, which now includes up to 20 wind turbines with the maximum capacity of 7 MW. The next step involves the development of project technical documentation. In September 2022 the Provincial Secretariat for Energy, Construction and Transport issued a land permit for the project. The positive report of the Audit Committee for the preliminary project issued in November of the previous year, allowed for the preparation of technical documentation for the amendment of the building permit. Additionally, the revision of the environmental impact assessment study for Plandiste Wind Park 1 has commenced.
We started updating and adjusting all other permits necessary for the construction of the wind park as well as updating the design of the grid connection with the approval and support of the state distribution company Elektromreza Srbije.
Plandiste Wind Park is a regular and active member of Serbia’s Renewables Association, and participates in all industry events as well as the events held by Wind Europe, Europe’s largest wind power association.
