The Government of Kosovo* is dedicated to ensuring proper development of energy from renewable sources, as a prerequisite for sustainable economic development deputy minister of economic development Besa Zogaj-Gashi said during the inauguration of hydropower plant Brodi 2 in the village of Mlike in the municipality of Dragash.

The 3.89 MW facility is part of an investment project of EUR 16 million for five units in the water streams of Rastelica and Brod. Foundations for Brodi 2 and Restelica 1, a plant with a capacity of 2.28 MW, were laid in August 2014, with a deadline for construction of three years. Zakeršnik family company Eurokos JH Sh. P.
