Bosnia and Herzegovina (BiH) will abolish the limit on the maximum connection capacity of wind farms and solar power plants. Experts believe that in this way, BiH is getting the best environment in the region for the development of renewable energy sources.

The abolition of the limit on the maximum connection capacity of wind farms and solar power plants means that it will be possible to register projects whose total power is not limited. A rough estimate shows that projects with a total capacity of about 1,500 MW for wind farms and about 1,500 MW for solar power plants are currently at various stages of development in Bosnia and Herzegovina.

The decision was made by the State Regulatory Commission for Electricity (DERK) based on the proposal of the Independent System Operator in BiH (NOSBiH). Otherwise, the limit is determined on the basis of simulations of variability and assessment of the flexibility of the electricity system, which is key to the balancing function.

Initially, the limit was set at 460 MW for wind and 400 MW for solar, but some two years ago the limits were increased from 460 MW to 840 MW and from 400 MW to 825 MW.
