Energy Community Secretariat will cooperate with European Environment Agency on the Contracting Parties’ obligation to report on emissions of large combustion plants.

“The European Environment Agency has agreed for the Secretariat to make use of its tools for the reporting and assessment of data submitted by the Contracting Parties,” the Energy Community Secretariat said in a statement.

On 1 January 2018, the implementation of the Directive 2001/80/EC on the limitation of emissions of certain pollutants into the air from large combustion plants (LCPD) started in the Energy Community.

The Directive determines the type of applicable combustion plans, the measures to reduce the emissions, including the respective deadlines.

Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Kosovo*, Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia, Georgia, Moldova, Montenegro, Serbia and Ukraine as Contracting Parties are obligated to reduce fossil fuel-fired power plants emissions’ of sulfur dioxide, nitrogen oxides and dust.

Under the Directive operators as well as the Contracting Parties must monitor the emissions of these pollutants and report those to the Secretariat.

The Directive applies to combustion plants with a rated thermal input equal to or greater than 50 MW.

As Director of the Energy Community Secretariat Janez Kopač earlier said the first reporting will be due when the data for the year 2018 becomes available, i.e. at the beginning of 2019.

* This designation is without prejudice to positions on status and is in line with UNSCR 1244/99 and the ICJ Opinion on the Kosovo declaration of independence.
