Green Energy

Project 1.000+ includes construction and operation of power plants from renewable energy sources.

Investment sectors

Green Energy

The development of new, clean energy sources is a focal point of Kermas Group’s global investment strategy. Not only do we believe in the long-term profitably of the sector, but also Kermas is firmly dedicated to advancing green technologies as part of our wider commitment to environmental sustainability and corporate social responsibility.

KERMAS’ 1,000+ PROJECTS

As part of our commitment to produce 1,000 MW or energy from renewable sources by the end of the decade we have recently expanded our green energy portfolio in Croatia and Bosnia and Herzegovina. We expect that our investment will encourage other global players to step up their own commitments to renewable energy production.

Why Croatia?

Croatia, is ideally situated in the heart of Europe, and has easy transportation links to the rest of the continent, good airport infrastructure and long coastline.

As the newest EU member, Croatia is also committed to meeting EU-wide renewable energy pledges. The government has made green energy a focal point of its economic development plans and has introduced a range of incentives to help get this vital sector off the ground.

WIND

Due to its long coastline, Croatia has considerable wind energy potential, with the country’s various coastal mountains’ locations serving as prime positions for wind energy farms.

According to government studies, many Croatian wind farms’ sites have the capacity to produce some 35% more electricity than the EU wind farm average, making them an excellent investment.

Through its daughter company, ‘Oštra stina’, Kermas has already invested in a 42MW wind park, Kamensko & Voštane. In the coming years it plans to invest in the construction of four further large-scale wind farms.

HYDRO

Hydropower potential, currently the most developed renewable energy source worldwide, is of great importance in Kermas energy investment strategy.

So far, Kermas has invested in several existing small hydro power plants in Bosnia and Herzegovina. Together with our Bosnian partners, we are currently looking for further investment opportunities.

Furthermore, Kermas is a majority shareholder in Kermas Innovation Technologies (KIT), which has patented and is developing the underwater screw turbine system that holds great potential in the field of clean, renewable energies.

SOLAR

Solar energy is expanding rapidly, growing by between 40 to 90% year-on-year across the EU. With the world’s continued thirst for energy, we believe that solar power will continue to play an ever greater part.

This energy source is particularly valuable for less developed countries, with poor transportation and infrastructure, because it can be installed in virtually any location and is deemed highly portable.

Kermas therefore intends to build future solar power project throughout southern Africa, in order to support its existing and future mining activities.
