Dark and Bright Tomorrows

In few hours Croatia might easily be affected by nation-wide blackout. From 08:00 to 17:00 CET power companies of Croatian and Bosnia-Herzegovina are going to disconnect their respective grids from the rest of Europe in order to test their ability to function on their own.

Any serious malfunction in each of two national grids might result in massive blackouts. The most critical hours are between 08:00 and 09:00.

On October 10th Croatia would join Europe-wide power exchange system and this could prevent similar blackouts from happening in the future.
