Slovenian grid to remain in competent hands


The Slovenian transmission system operator (TSO) and TSC member ELES has published its annual report for 2015. On 157 pages the company offers a detailed insight in the figures and operations of ELES in 2015. A special feature of the current report is the inclusion of artistic photographs from young Slovenian photographers dealing with concepts and practices of energy transmission.

2015 was a successful and significant year for ELES. The most important event was the receipt of the Slovenian TSO-concession for the next 50 years. Furthermore, ELES was able to finalise two major investments: the updating of supervisory control, data acquisition and energy management systems in the national control centre of the Slovenian electric power system as well as the implementing of modern enterprise resource planning systems. These accomplishments represent a giant step towards improved business excellence and the realisation of a trans-European grid network. Concerning the latter, ELES cooperates closely with other TSC members and members of the European Network of Transmission System Operators for Electricity (ENTSO-E). The coupling of the Slovenian market with the Italian electricity market by means of multi-regional coupling (MRC) has to be considered as the company’s key achievement regarding cross-border transmission capacity in 2015. Besides that, the TSO pursued various projects in the field of smart networks, proving the company’s capability of implementing new technologies.

Through providing regional grid stability and supply security with one of the most technologically advanced networks, ELES strives to maintain its prime role in the Slovenian electric power system. To justify the trust placed in the company, ELES will keep up its high ambitions, rise to the challenges of a changing electricity market and introduce technological innovations.
