Media: “Government is postponing the beginning of heating season until late October”

The Serbian government is expected to postpone the start of the heating season to the last day of October, according to the media.

The website states that information on the postponement of the heating season is expected to be announced shortly by PM Ana Brnabić. The Ministry of Energy, however, says that it did not talk with any thermal power plants about postponing the start of the heating season, adding that ‘they are ready to talk if there are arguments in favour of such a proposal’.

Nova also claims that by postponing the start of the heating season, the government is trying to save energy, which is bought at astronomical prices on the global market in insufficient quantities.

“Everyone is keeping their fingers crossed regarding the weather and is closely following weather forecasts. For the moment, the weather is going in their favour because in the next two weeks the temperatures will be around 20 degrees. They are trying to take advantage of these weather conditions and the heating systems will start working two weeks later than planned,’ explains the Nova source.

The Večernje Novosti daily reports that a letter, stipulating energy-saving measures, has been sent to all thermal power plants and individual town administrations, and in accordance with this, the date for the start of heating has been postponed.

According to information presented at the meetings of the government’s working group for monitoring energy supply, thermal power plants in Serbia are ready for the heating season and will provide sufficient heating.
