Pospešena elektrifikacija - temelj energetske strategije Slovenije v času obnove in centralnoplanske ureditve (1945−1950)
HIGH PRIORITY ELECTRIFICATION: THE FOUNDATION OF SLOVENIAN ENERGY STRATEGY DURING THE RESTORATION AND CENTRALLY PLANNED SYSTEM (1945-1950)
Apart from the politicians it was especially newspapers which strengthened the conviction of inexhaustible energy resources among the population. »The treasures of Prekmurje lie deep underground. What is a ton of wheat, which also grows elsewhere, in comparison with a single oil well? Nothing. That is why fields and meadows give way to oil. (...) Oil is the lifeblood of technology. And we have oil,« wrote the author of an article in the Slovenski poročevalec newspaper. On the basis of available materials the following contribution first looks at the war damages and the resumed production of energy capabilities in the Slovenian space in 1945 and 1946. Then the author analyses the efforts of the planners between 1947 and 1950 to establish a greater co-dependence of energy resources in order to ensure a more extensive and stable energy supply. In his well-argued narration the author also looks at the influence of foreign examples on the shaping of the new organisational model and on the creation of the business models of energy economy. He also examines the connections with the neighbouring electricity industry systems.
