The Belgrade Energy Forum event platform will initiate on May 13 and 14 some major partnerships, financing agreements and contracting opportunities in the energy sector of Southeast Europe. Join the global and regional players in the power, renewable energy and energy storage sphere who will be attending the conference and make winning partnerships. Find a buyer or investor for your renewable energy project or projects.

Four hundred participants from 26 countries from all over the world are coming to Belgrade Energy Forum 2024. Some of the 150 companies are already present in Southeast European markets.

Through its BEF conference, scheduled for May 13-14, Balkan Green Energy News is providing a matching platform for project developers and investors. Prominent global names in power, renewable energy and energy storage are looking to tap into the investment boom unfolding in the region. Companies intend to expand their business as countless wind power and photovoltaic projects in the pipeline are maturing, amounting to hundreds of gigawatts in different stages.

Developers are seeking partners and buyers for their mature projects

Developers of large projects intend to sell a substantial share, raise capital, or divest completely. They are seeking partners and buyers.

Serbia’s electricity transmission system operator Elektromreža Srbije (EMS) has recently approved grid connection terms for renewable energy projects that submitted applications under new rules.

This is the moment when many transactions in the market will take place and the opportunity for investors to participate in or buy advanced projects with space reserved in the country’s network.

Heavyweight M&A agreements ahead in Western Balkans

The market in the Western Balkans is following in the footsteps of Turkey and neighboring European Union member countries, where heavyweight mergers and acquisitions are taking place.

Romania has emerged as one of the most attractive markets. A year ago, Greek government-controlled Public Power Corp. (PPC) took over Enel’s operations in the country and kept growing. The utility is expanding elsewhere in the region, as well. Hellenic Energy entered Romania, too, and it is working on more than 800 MW in photovoltaics.

Renewable energy investments in the Western Balkans are mirroring the trend from the wider region

A subsidiary of PowerChina acquired 51% of Vetrozelena, a 291 MW wind power project in Serbia that CWP Europe developed. Luxembourg-based Alcazar Energy is another example of the rising investment wave in the Western Balkans. In September it agreed to take over the Bijela wind power project of 118 MW in Montenegro.

The trend is clear. International investors are stepping in to take over advanced projects. Others are coming on board with domestic partners in the goldilocks zone – to make hay while the sun shines.

At the most significant multistakeholder gathering in Southeast Europe’s green energy sector, project developers and businesses can find out about financing possibilities from leading international financial institutions (IFIs) and commercial banks joining the conference.

International companies are pursuing acquisitions as projects are maturing in their hundreds

Local businesses can catch the investment wave in Southeast Europe

The most important institutions, associations and companies in the regional market have supported Belgrade Energy Forum. The event’s sponsors and partners will hold presentations and discuss the largest projects in a series of panels on essential sustainable energy topics for the region.

Companies require equipment and services to materialize their large wind and solar power investments in Southeast Europe

Energy companies will outline the latest deals and indicate their next investment intentions. You can check out the conference’s website for more on the participating top-tier brands. They will be on the lookout for agreements on services and technology. It could be a serious boost for domestic firms as well, particularly in the construction, consulting and legal services domain.

Strategic green energy projects are about to propel the energy transition in the Western Balkans

Several deals with the Western Balkans’ governments are expected to be arranged soon in the form of strategic partnerships. It is a new model, aimed at setting the stage for accelerating the energy transition.

In addition, such large-scale wind, photovoltaic and battery energy storage projects are opening options for infrastructure and technology firms in the region and beyond. The big investors will need contractors on the ground.

Companies negotiating strategic partnerships with government officials will be at Belgrade Energy Forum, keeping the trajectory on track. It is an opportunity for local businesses to meet global players and present how they can contribute to major projects in the region.
