Elektroprivreda BiH (the shortened name for Elektroprivreda Bosne i Hercegovine) is a 90% publicly owned power generation, distribution and retailing company in Bosnia-Herzegovina.

Power stations

Elektroprivreda BiH currently operates two coal-fired power stations with an installed capacity of 1,165 megawatts (MW) and three hydropower plants with installed capacity of 517 MW. In 2009 approximately 40% of the power generated from the plants was exported. A long term energy supply plan for the government of Bosnia & Herzegovina to 2030 foreshadows a massive expansion of coal power stations. Of the just over 1500 megawatts of new capacity flagged, Elektroprivreda BiH are proposing that 1,150 MW would be from coal-fired plants.[1]

A March 2010 planning document by the Federal Ministry of energy, mining and industry notes that Elektroprivreda BiH states that "our target is to construct new, modern thermal power plants to substitute our old units. We are also focused on construction of new hydro and wind energy facilities in order to increase generation capacities from renewable sources."[2]
