Energy Community Secretariat said it sincerely welcomes the Albanian Parliament’s adoption of a Third Energy Package compliant electricity law on 30 April. The law consolidates the reforms taken so far in this sector which have been neglected in the past, the press release said. Albania is the second country among the Energy Community Contracting Parties to have transposed the requirements of the package in the electricity sector.

Dirk Buschle, deputy director of the Energy Community Secretariat, welcomed the adoption of the law: “The importance of the law goes far beyond formal compliance with EU legislation. It constitutes a decisive step forward on the long path of energy reforms in Albania for which it lays a solid foundation. We have worked very closely together with the Albanian authorities on this law from the very first draft. I am particularly grateful for having cooperated with capable and responsible partners in the government and the parliament, and congratulate them on their leadership.”
