Under the memorandum, the two institutions are to undertake joint activities in analyzing the development of the country’s energy sector, increasing the share of renewable energy sources, implementing the latest global practices and modern scientific knowledge, as well as analyzing the obligations of Macedonia under international agreements in the field of energy and greenhouse gas emissions.
