Tušnica wind farm and Zvizdan solar power plant online in Bosnia and Herzegovina by end of 2023


Work is underway on two more renewable energy power plants in the Federation of Bosnia and Herzegovina, and both are expected to be online by the end of 2023. The projects in question are the Tušnica Wind Farm of 72.6 MW and the 23 MW Zvizdan solar power plant.

So far only two wind farms have been built in all of Bosnia and Herzegovina, Mesihovina and Jelovača, near Tomislavgrad in FBiH, while there are no large solar power plants in the country. Currently, 2.2 GW of wind farms are in various stages of development in Bosnia and Herzegovina, as well as solar power plants with a capacity of several hundred megawatts.

Both power plants are built by the same investor who installed the Jelovača wind farm

During a visit to the Jelovača wind farm, Nermin Džindić, Federal Minister of Energy, Mines and Industry, said that the same private investor who built this 36 MW wind farm is also working on the two new plants. During the construction of the Jelovača wind farm, it was announced that the investor was a company called FL Wind.

According to Džindić, the value of the Tušnica project is estimated at 100 million euros and that of the Zvizdan project at 20 million euros.

The Tušnica wind farm and the Zvizdan solar park are expected to start generating electricity by the end of 2023, Džindić said, adding that the FBiH government would support all such projects.

FBiH to meet Energy Community requirement to produce 40% of electricity from renewables by 2023

He also said that the FBiH is ready to fulfill the conditions set by the Energy Community regarding the share of renewable energy sources.

The FBiH government is ready to meet the requirements to produce 60% of the electricity in thermal power plants and 40% in renewable installations by the end of 2023, according to Džindić.
