Slovakia’s National Convent on the EU discusses renewable energy sources

The National Convent on the European Union will discuss the use of renewable energy sources in Slovakia in Nitra on October 6, the TASR newswire wrote.

The National Convent on the European Union will discuss the use of renewable energy sources in Slovakia in Nitra on October 6, the TASR newswire wrote.

The Convent is a platform established by the Slovak cabinet involving NGOs, experts and religious groups. Experts in the fields of energy, climate and other areas will seek efficient solutions which will be provided as working ideas to state authorities. Slovakia is striving to produce more energy from renewable sources but first needs an analysis on their efficiency under specific conditions.

Only a correctly selected combination of projects respecting the complexity of the energy system will enable stable supplies. The final goal and result does not depend solely on the number of wind farms but also on the quality of the overall concept, according to Milan Šuplata of the Matej Bel University. The opinion of the public, which often does not favour alternative energy sources, is decisive for the success of projects, as well. In addition to energy and climate change, the convent will also discuss economy, migration, security, foreign policy and institutional and budgetary reform. TASR
