About

Borzen was founded on 28th March 2001 and is owned by the Government of Slovenia. As the Electricity Market Operator we provide and facilitate the coordinated operation of the Slovenian electricity system.

We perform various activities in the field of, primarily, electricity: balance scheme management, recording of closed contracts and operational forecasts, elaboration of indicative operating schedules, imbalance settlement, balancing market operation, REMIT RRM services and financial settlement of transactions, all connected with the aforementioned activities. Within the Centre for RES/CHP support, we stimulate environmental policies and promote public awareness. The Centre for RES/CHP support is the support scheme operator for the generation of electricity from renewable energy sources and highly efficient cogeneration of heat and power (CHP).

We also perform various  other activities related to renewables, such as operating the Guarantees of Origin registry and informing and training in the field of RES and energy efficiency, stemming from requirements of the EU Energy Efficiency Directive. BSP, a daughter company of Borzen, (http://www.bsp-southpool.com/) operates the day-ahead (DA) and intra-day (ID) markets. Borzen is directly responsible for the balancing market (BAL). In 2015, common DA and ID represented approx. 51% of total Slovenian yearly electricity consumption.
