The Fifth Renewable Energy Stakeholder Forum was held on March 24 in Economic Chamber of Macedonia, according to the press release issued by USAID Clean Energy Investment Project.

The Forums, established back in 2013 by the Clean Energy Investment Project in collaboration with the Association of renewable energy producers within the Macedonia Economic Chamber and the International Finance Corporation (IFC) Balkan Renewable Energy Program, serve as a vehicle for public-private dialogue on issues related to renewable energy.

On previous Forums many ideas and initiatives were identified, which contributed to improve the legal and regulatory framework, and to resolve some of the practical implementation problems that renewable energy investors encounter. The Forum was opened by the Deputy Prime Minister for Economic Affairs (DPMEA), Vladimir Pesevski, the President of the Association of Renewable Energy, Koco Angushev and USAID Mission Director, James Stein.

The Renewable Energy Forums are a much needed mechanism for bringing together renewable energy investors, local organizations, representatives of relevant ministries and agencies, and donor community to discuss issues that impact the implementation of investment projects in renewable energy. Topics of discussion at the fifth Forum included legal and practical improvements of the renewable energy investment procedures, and investments in photo-voltaic panels on roof tops.

USAID Clean Energy Investment Project supports the Government of Macedonia’s efforts in improving renewable energy enabling environment and implementing relevant strategies with the goal to increase investment in energy generation from renewable sources, and reduce Macedonia’s total final energy consumption and greenhouse gas emissions.
