Trnava Region, the town of Trnava and four regional associations of towns and villages in Trnava County have signed a memorandum to establish the Energy Cluster-Western Slovakia. Trnava Region holds a 50 percent stake in the cluster, while other members hold 10 percent each, the SITA newswire wrote.

The head of Trnava Region, Tibor Mikuš, informed SITA that the cluster is expected to gradually raise competitiveness of suppliers in the energy sector. Its aim is to exploit the energy potential of the country while giving preference to environmentally safe and renewable energy resources.

Mikuš hopes that the region will see new facilities using hydropower, biomass, solar energy, geothermal energy, waste and wind energy in the coming years. He expects this to lead to lower energy costs, a higher employment rate in the region, environmental protection and making the region more attractive. SITA
