TPP Nikola Tesla is a power plant complex operated by EPS, located on the right bank of the river Sava, approximately 40 km upstream from Belgrade, near the town of Obrenovac. By far the largest one in Serbia, the complex generates around 16 TWh annually (see 1 E16 J), which covers almost half of Serbia's needs for electricity. The complex and two of its plants are named in honor of Nikola Tesla.

The complex has four power plants:
