HSE, Slovenian state-owned energy company generates 70 % of the electricity produced in Slovenia and 86 % of the electricity from renewable energy sources in the country.

HSE said that electricity production of its hydropower plants is 21 % above planned in November.

The statement from the company said that, between 1 and 19 November, its HPPs produced a total of 219 GWh of electricity. In addition, its coal-fired thermal power plant Sostanj produced 267 GWh of electricity.

HSE said earlier this month that its power plants produced a total of 995 GWh of electricity in October, which is the highest monthly output in the company’s history. Electricity production in October was 50 % above planned and represents about 13 % of HSE’s annual electricity generation. HSE operates two hydropower subsidiaries – Dravske Elektrarne Maribor (DEM) and Soske Elektrarne Nova Gorica (SENG), and coal-fired thermal power plant Sostanj, with combined installed capacity of 1,990 MW. Such results have been achieved due to excellent hydrological conditions, high reliability of the plants and favorable conditions in the energy market.
