Kosovo makes progress in the energy field

In the 9th meeting of the Ministerial Council of the Energy Community which was held in Chisinau, Moldova, Kosovos Minister of Economic Development, Besim Beqaj stated that Kosovo has made tremendous progress in implementing the obligations arising from the Energy Community Treaty and the process of EU integration.

The Minister stressed that Kosovo has taken all the necessary steps in reforming the energy sector. In this regard, he informed the participants that the National Assembly has passed the basic laws on energy such as the energy law, the law on electricity, the law on the energy regulatory commission, the energy efficiency law and many other acts which are in the process of implementation.
Further, it was stated that the Kosovo Government is committed to develop new capacities in the field of power generation which is an essential precondition for economic development. In this context, projects like the construction of the new power plant Kosova e Re and the privatization of electricity supply and distribution have an important role in attracting private capital into the country and building stability in the energy sector.

Minister Beqaj said that Kosovo was committed to strengthen the integration into the regional energy market, which would lead to the elimination of many current barriers to energy cooperation and a future increase in the level of cooperation and coordination between the signatory states of the Energy Community Treaty.

One very important outcome of this meeting was the decision for full implementation of the third internal energy market package by 2015, which implies full harmonization of the Kosovo power system to that of EU member states.
