Information exchange / communication between relevant stakeholders
For a long time, there has been a lack of comprehensive process guides, or overviews, for steps required for installation of RES technologies in Croatia. If there have been any publicly available government-made guides, they can by now be considered obsolete since they had been issued at least several years ago and have not been updated. Currently, renewable energy associations, instead of public authorities, provide most assistance to project developers. Renewable energy associations usually do this only for their own members or at a certain price, which impedes the free spread of information and knowledge about necessary procedures for RES projects, especially for smaller projects which could be undertaken by citizens, such as PV systems for own consumption.
However, in the last week of 2021, the "Guide for the Development and Implementation of Renewable Energy Projects in Croatia" was published. This roughly-100-page guide was financed by the EBRD (European Bank for Reconstruction and Development) and it should serve as the basis for investment into renewable energy projects in Croatia. The Guide was published alongside another study, the "Action Plan for Power Grid Strengthening to Support the Integration of Renewable Energy Sources in Croatia", also financed by the EBRD. Making of these studies was initiated by the "Economic and Interest Association Renewable Energy Sources of Croatia".
This online database provides information on barriers and best practices for wind onshore, wind offshore, PV rooftop and PV ground-mounted technologies.
