Germany-based RWE Innogy and Serbian energy utility Elektroprivreda Srbije have formed a joint venture for the development of hydropower plants in Belgrade, RWE reported.

In the years to come, the joint venture company, "Moravske hidroelektrane d.o.o.," is to develop five run-of-river small hydro plants with an installed capacity of 30 MW each on the Morava River.
