The Energy Summit, first big event within USAID’s Energy Investment Activity (EIA) project, was held in Neum on April 16 and 17, Energetika.ba portal reported.

At the event it was said Bosnia and Herzegovina could more than double its electricity generation level, a significant part of which could come from hydropower potential, renewable energy sources and energy efficiency.

The project’s budget is USD 5.47 million (EUR 5.03 million) and it is planned to last until 2019.

Integration into Southeastern Europe’s market is obstructed by legislation not harmonized with the one in the European Union and not fulfilling obligations from the Third Energy Package, participants said, Federalna.ba reported.
