Baranya county is directly connected to the greatest electricity producer in Hungary, the Paks Nuclear Power Plant, and the national transfer grid. The 400 kV system can serve the power needs of the entire region. The security of supply is further increased by the fact, that the system is connected to the network in Croatia as well, which allows for two-way transmission. The county gas network is directly connected to the South Plains’ gas producing and pooling system, from where the adequate amounts of energy reaches the region through the pipeline system. Supply to the area is safe, the only source of risk – depending on the level of safety reserves – is the suspension of international transmission. The use of renewable energy sources is widespread in the county. In addition to businesses that use solar and geothermal energy, the local governments of Bóly and Szentlőrinc also operate on geothermal energy. Pécs is the national centre of hydrogen fuel cell development, which is of European significance.
