The transmission system of Slovenia is increasingly experiencing tendencies to connect new electricity generation sources, especially renewable energy sources (RES), such as solar and wind power plants. When choosing the suitable location of new production sources investors usually take various factors into account. Often chosen locations are remote, with weak electrical connections, resulting in a lengthy and costly process for connection of new installations.
In order to facilitate the integration of new power sources into the transmission network, ELES performed an analysis to identify high-voltage substations where quick connection of new generation is possible. By doing this, ELES wants to direct potential investors to those regions and substations that today already enable the connection of new electricity sources without the necessary extensive and time-consuming upgrades of the transmission network. The identified possible connection points are favourable both in terms of the space required for connection to the substation, as well as the network's capacity to integrate new electricity generation.
