Bosnia and Herzegovina, and Serbia are unlikely to meet the 2020 renewables targets, while the situation in Albania, Kosovo* and North Macedonia remains questionable, the Energy Community Secretariat said.

This week, the Energy Community Secretariat hosted three consecutive events on how to boost renewables and facilitate their integration into the energy market to enable the energy transition. Finding the right policies and measures for a conducive renewables framework remains critical as many Contracting Parties have fallen behind in meeting their 2020 renewables targets.

Situation in Albania, Kosovo* and North Macedonia remains questionable due to the impact of hydrology, low investments in renewable energy or increase in energy consumption

According to the latest statistical data presented by the Secretariat at the Renewable Energy Coordination Group BiH, Serbia and Ukraine are unlikely to meet the 2020 renewables targets, while the situation in Albania, Kosovo* and North Macedonia remains questionable due to the impact of hydrology, low investments in renewable energy or increase in energy consumption, the Secretariat said.

No Contracting Party will meet the 10% renewable energy target for the transport sector

With respect to the 10% renewable energy target for the transport sector, no Contracting Party will meet the target, with present shares at or close to 0%. Complete status updates for each Contracting Party will be provided by the Secretariat’s Annual Implementation Report 2019, to be published next week.

The lack of reliable statistical data, especially on biomass used for heating, was identified as a key bottleneck for tracking the progress accurately

According to the Secretariat, the lack of reliable statistical data, especially on biomass used for heating, was identified as a key bottleneck for tracking the Contracting Parties’ progress accurately, but also for building credible forecasts for the integrated national energy climate plans (NECPs) to 2030.

The Coordination Group meeting brought to the table stakeholders who shared their views on how to build trust via a credible and transparent renewables framework, including successful auctions.
