Serbia, The regulation on discounts for electricity is good, it will not cost the state much, News
According to energy expert Vojislav Vuletić, the latest decree of the Government of Serbia on energy-vulnerable customers, which will significantly increase the number of households entitled to a discount on electricity bills, is a very good move that will help many citizens and will not cost the state too much.
Asked what kind of electricity supply situation we can expect in the coming period, Vuletić stated for Tanjug that we can be without worry, because the water levels of the rivers are high and we have enough water for the operation of hydroelectric plants.
He added that after autumn, winter precipitation will follow, which will contribute to high water levels and hydroelectric power plants working at full capacity.
When it comes to gas supply, he emphasized that neither this nor the next winter, which many believe will be worse, should scare us, because, as he said, Serbia has an extraordinary policy regarding gas and the quantities stored in Hungary are a big guarantee that we will be able to survive this winter and that we will have gas left for the next one as well.
This, he stated, could not be said for Europe and Germany, where Chancellor Olaf Scholz opened a terminal for liquefied natural gas on Saturday.
I feel sorry for Europe, because with what it is doing and the latest sanctions against Russia, it is cutting the branch on which it is sitting. As far as Scholz is concerned, Germany consumes about 90 billion cubic meters of gas, of which 50 percent comes from Russia. 45 billion mostly goes to consumer goods and industry, and Soltz will not be allowed to provide citizens with gas for heating and households this winter, but industry will be left without gas, Vuletić said.
He added that Europe opens liquid gas terminals for nothing when there is no gas production and stated that according to data from the International Gas Union, in April of this year the occupancy of European warehouses was 30 billion cubic meters less than in 2020.
That was the time of the beginning of the war in Ukraine, there was also a problem with Canada, which did not want to overhaul the Nord Stream turbines. Consumption is reduced, gas does not go through Poland, their warehouses are empty. They can lie to their people that their warehouses are full, but they are not, Vuletić told Tanjug, Dnevnik writes.
