The head of the European Union Delegation in Serbia Sem Fabrizi said on Wednesday that he was negotiating with Serbia'sSerbia's authorities a new financial package for this and next year worth 80 million Euro for the environment protection in the country, the Beta news agency reported.
Fabrizi told the opening of the Energy and Investment Fair in the northern city of Novi Sad that the EU would start the "Green Agreement," aiming at making the bloc carbon dioxide emission neutral in the next 30 years.
"We would be the first continent to achieve that. But that is not so simple for the business community, though they are too aware that such change brings opportunities as well. The European Commission will adopt the first law on climate, which will define the needs of investors and entrepreneurs. It also works on a sustainable investment plan with over one trillion Euro fund," Fabrizi said.
Vojvodina's Provincial Government Deputy Prime Minister Djordje Milicevic said Serbia's 2020 energy balance envisaged that some 20 percent of total energy production would be from renewables.
"All the capacities of wind farms in Serbia are built across (Serbia's northern province of) Vojvodina," he added.
