The Renewable Energy Strategy (RES) for 2007-2020 targets the increase of RES production to 15% by 2020. The strategy will favour decentralized energy production, the cogeneration of heat and power and the establishment of small power stations utilizing renewable sources locally. The strategy forecasts a substantial amount of new investments by 2020, in the field of biomass, wind, solar and geothermal energy. Electricity generation from RES will grow faster than heat generation.
