Renewable energy sources
At Petrol, we are investing in renewable energy production, striving to increase its share in our energy mix. We are focusing on the production of solar, wind and hydroelectric energy. Through comprehensive projects that integrate renewable energy sources (RES), we are improving the energy-efficiency of cities, local communities and companies.
Renewable energy sources are the future
Creating a low carbon future, together
Wind energy is gaining momentum: New Ljubač wind farm
A new Petrol wind farm, Ljubač, was built in Croatia, the first wind farm in the Petrol Group that has been built without financial backing from funds for renewable electricity generation. There are 9 wind turbines in Ljubač, which will annually generate around 96 GWh of electricity – green sustainable power, which will cover the needs of 30,000 average households.
We created the first energy self-sufficient community in Luče
Luče is the first energy self-sufficient community in Slovenia with island operation, established as part of the European COMPILE project. The village covers its electricity needs solely from renewable energy sources. The project has great potential, as the solutions developed can be applied across the wider region, especially in places with a weakened electricity grid.
Solar power stations are being installed in industrial complexes
In the industrial area of Železarna Ravne, Slovenia, we installed two new solar power plants on the roofs of two production facilities. During the course of 20 years, the power plants will generate more than 6 million kilowatt hours of electricity from renewable energy sources. Petrol will use the energy generated for its own needs and reduce carbon dioxide emissions by 126 tons of CO2 per year.
