Minister of Energy and Mining, Dubravka Đedović Handanović, is set to continue her role under the new prime minister-designate, Miloš Vučević, who has also proposed to appoint Minister of Environmental Protection, Irena Vujović, as deputy prime minister, maintaining her current position.

Following December’s general election, President Aleksandar Vučić designated Miloš Vučević, the head of the ruling Serbian Progressive Party (SNS), as the next prime minister. Vučević’s proposed cabinet includes retaining Dubravka Đedović Handanović and Irena Vujović in their respective ministerial roles, with Vujović additionally taking on the role of deputy prime minister.

Previously serving as deputy prime minister and minister of defense under Prime Minister Ana Brnabić, Vučević brings extensive political experience, having served as the mayor of Novi Sad from 2012 to 2022.

Đedović Handanović, who assumed office in October 2022, has overseen significant developments in Serbia’s energy sector, including the country’s inaugural renewable energy auctions and the legal restructuring of the state-owned power utility, Elektroprivreda Srbije (EPS).

Serbia is currently in negotiations with Hyundai Engineering and UGT Renewables for a strategic partnership to construct a series of solar power plants totaling 1.2 GW in peak capacity, along with battery storage, to be transferred to EPS upon completion.

Last week, Minister Đedović Handanović inaugurated a desulfurization system at TENT A, Serbia’s largest coal-fired power plant. She is also scheduled to speak at the upcoming Belgrade Energy Forum on May 13, organized by Balkan Green Energy News.

With 18 years of experience in the international banking sector, Đedović Handanović brings a wealth of expertise to her ministerial role, having previously served on the Executive Board of NLB Komercijalna banka, focusing on corporate and investment banking.
