 RTD Experiences

 Description of RTD activities
Besides in educational energy related programmes for undergraduate, graduate and postgraduate students, Department of Power Systems has been actively involved for many years in analyses linked with establishment of new strategies for energy sector and power system development for the Republic of Croatia. It has experience in preparing medium and long-term electricity generation development plan for power system, performing comparisons of energy, economic and environmental characteristics of different options for electric power generating, preparing studies for rational use of energy, energy savings and renewable energy sources (RES) utilisation. The main research directions are to create analytical and software tools, which will enable a smooth transition to liberalized electricity market in Croatia, to analyse technical, economic and environmental aspects of various RES technologies, examine the role and support mechanisms for RES within a liberalised market, develop power system planning methods under uncertain conditions and examine the role of decentralised energy sources in increasing power supply reliability and efficiency. Significant share of activates is directed towards energy end-use efficiency in industrial and service sector, support for policy making in this field and research on possible energy efficiency improvements and their contribution to the security of energy supply in Croatia, region and the EU. The Department is a founder of the expert postgraduate study entitled “Energy Efficiency and Environment”.
