Regardless of whether you live in Zagreb, Podgorica, Sarajevo or Belgrade, the electricity you use in your home is mostly obtained by coal burning. More precisely – 70% of the used up electricity is received from regional thermal power plants whose work is harmful to the nature and the health of people. For the European Union this is absolutely unacceptable and countries in the region are expected to start using alternative solutions. The Dark Shadow of Green Energy follows Irma Popović Dujmović, a WWF Adria activist on the road through Croatia, Bosnia, Serbia and Montenegro, discovering how the regional plan for mass construction of small hydropower plants creates multiple new problems instead of solving them. The devastation of nature, the open revolt of people against small hydropower plants as well as the corruption in their construction are just some, but not the darkest, shadows of green energy.
