The Energy Community Secretariat has published today the Work Programme for the provision of technical assistance to Western Balkan 6 Contracting Parties for supporting the creation of a regional electricity market.

It is aimed at removing the existing legislative and regulatory barriers and enhancing the institutional structures necessary for the functioning of the market in line with the Energy Community Treaty. The project “Technical Assistance to Connectivity in the Western Balkans – Component 2: Regional Energy Market” is funded by the European Union and implemented by the Energy Community Secretariat.

The technical assistance to connectivity in the Western Balkans facilitates the implementation of a set of measures that the Contracting Parties committed to at the Western Balkan Summit in Vienna in 2015. The overriding focus of the project is on spot-market development, cross-border balancing and regional capacity allocation, as well as cross-cutting measures. The project was initiated in July 2016 and will last for two years. The Work Programme published today outlines the list of technical assistance services that will be provided to support the implementation of the priority measures both on a regional and a national basis.

The Secretariat’s next monitoring report, which takes stock of the progress made in creating the regional electricity market in the Western Balkans, will be published in mid-December.

To support the project’s activities, the Energy Community Secretariat has published a call for expression of interest in order to create a roster of short-term experts. More information about the roster of experts and the application procedure is available via this link.
