In pursuit of the fulfilment of the goals and strategy of A.EN. Group with regards to the construction of renewable sources of energy, our longterm plan involves the construction of a small hydroelectric power plant “MVE Lisková”.
A more efficient utilization of the hydro-energentic potential as the most significant renewable source of energy is one of the EU strategies. According to the EU directive regarding the support for electric power produced from renewable sources, member states are supposed to achieve a 22.1 % indicative share of energy produced from renewable sources out of the total amount of the electric power produced.
According to the ´The Strategy for the Utilization of Renewable Sources of Energy´ approved by the government of the Slovak Republic in 2003, the development of renewable sources is one of the Slovak government´s priorities. The proposal of the energy policy of the Slovak Republic, debated and approved by the Slovak government at its meeting held on 11 January 2006, determines the fundamental goals and framework for the development of power engineering until the year 2030. This means that securing a sustainable economic growth is conditioned by securing reliable supplies of energy at optimum costs, while ensuring an adequate environmental protection.
A.EN. Slovensko has been working on the realization of a hydraulic structure, a small hydroelectric power plant on the River Váh, in the cadastral area of Lisková, the district of Ružomberok. The project is now in the preparatory phase. Our company via its general contractor has announced a tender for the provision of a feasibility study regarding the hydraulic structure. According to the parameters of the rivercourse, it can be assumed that the capacity of the small hydroelectric power plant will be in the region of 1 MW. One of the benefits of the hydraulic structure will be not only a supply of clean electric power from a renewable source, but also the migration of aquatic animals, especially fish, thanks to the construction of a modern fish ladder. The project will also involve a higher degree of flood protection. At the same time, we would like to build a construction which will be tastefully incorporated into the surrounding environment, serving as a pleasant recreational zone for people.
