Slovakia plans to renew talks on Danube Dam with Austria

In its strategy for renewable energy use, the Ministry of Economy has mentioned its plan to renew talks with Austria within the next year on reviving a joint project involving a hydropower plant on the Danube River at Wolfstahl, with installed output of 78 MW and annual production of about 450 GWh.

"With regard to the degree to which this project has been elaborated and to its potential, it is reasonable to include the construction of this large hydropower project in the strategic goals for 2015. Since building this dam would significantly contribute to the use of hydrological potential, it is necessary to begin talks with the Austrian government," the document reads.
