The aim of the project is to improve the financing environment for renewable energy project in Bosnia and Herzegovina, through addressing administrative risks arising from complex permitting procedures. This will be done through a workshop in Banja Luka in October 2017, where participants from local municipal bodies will learn about permitting for renewables and the main sources of risks
What we did
Starfish Energy lead the project in the proposal write up stage and developed the projects consortium consisting of Joanneum Research, Agency for economic development of the City of Prijedor (PREDA) and the City Development Agency Banja Luka (CIDEA).

Renewable energy market analysis for Croatia, Serbia and Bosnia and Herzegovina
The Western Balkan renewable energy markets are complex, due to unstable government policies, government owned energy markets and administrative barriers. Therefore the project developed a market risk assessment matrix for a private investor, in order to inform their decision of investing into Croatia, Bosnia and Herzegovina and Serbia.
What we did
Starfish Energy informed Ecofys on these three markets including a detailed description of government policies, progress in renewable energy target achievement, permitting procedures, electricity market designs, wind and solar potentials as well as concrete projects that could be purchased.

The objective of the Pricetag project funded by the European Climate Foundation is to update the 2014 wind onshore cost of capital data from Diacore and to provide cost of capital data for PV projects for 2016 in 6 South Eastern European (SEE) Member States: Bulgaria, Croatia, Greece, Hungary, Romania, the Slovak Republic.
What we did
Starfish Energy lead the investigation for Croatia, through conducting interviews with eight stakeholders, from the Croatian financial industry, renewable energy project developers and regulators. In the interviews the participants were asked to estimate costs of debt, costs of equity, debt to equity ratios and WACC for solar PV and wind energy projects. Finally we disseminated the results to the Croatian media.
