Kosovo: Loan and Grant Funding of Sustainable Energy Projects

Submitted by Baerbel Epp on November 25, 2014
KosovoBy declaring independence from Serbia in 2008, Kosovo became Europe´s youngest nation. The good news from the small country in the central Balkans with its 1.8 million inhabitants is that there have not been any major clashes between Kosovar Albanians and Serbians lately. Still, Kosovo faces plenty of severe challenges, such as a skyrocketing unemployment rate and an environment seriously harmed by fifty-year old coal power plant Kosovo A, which is said to be Europe’s number one coal polluter. Given the fact that Kosovo has the fifth-largest lignite resources in the world, the government plans to replace Kosovo A by a modern 600 MW coal power plant. But this approach has encountered fierce resistance from environmentalists organised in the umbrella organisation Kosovo Civil Society Consortium for Sustainable Development. They demand a shift in the state’s energy strategy, away from carbon-rich lignite to clean renewable energy resources. Recently, they have launched their No New Coal – Safer Future campaign and declared Kosovo “a nation at the forefront of the global debate over energy access and the role of fossil fuels versus cleaner energy.”

Since Croatia joined the European Union (EU) in July 2013, the number of non-EU members in Southeast Europe has shrunk yet again. What’s more: The remaining countries are on their way to becoming part of the EU as well, which has them vowing to renew their energy systems and make them more efficient. The photo shows an installation in Croatia, at which a PV module supplies the electricity needed for the pump of the solar system.
