Macedonia – Small Country, But Innovative Industry

Submitted by Baerbel Epp on June 19, 2017
Ilija NasovDuring the last days of May, it got rather heated in Skopje, Macedonia’s capital – politically and climate-wise. While the summer sun was providing all the warmth it could muster, the nation’s deputies gathered in the Macedonian parliament building to form a new government, bringing an end to a years-long and severe political crisis. The Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia, a small Balkan country with a strikingly viable solar thermal industry, has since been headed by Zoran Zaev, a member of the Social Democratic Union party. Assistant Professor Ilija Nasov (see photo) has high hopes for the new government. In 2012, when Nasov was dean of the Faculty of Ecological Resources Management at MIT University Skopje, he founded collector producer Camel Solar, located on the northern outskirts of Macedonia’s capital.

Macedonian Government Announces New solar Thermal Subsidy Scheme

Submitted by Baerbel Epp on July 11, 2012

 Apartments in Soravia” The Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia (FYROM) is one of the candidate countries for the European Union (EU) since 2005. Becoming part of the EU means having to bring Macedonia’s laws into line with the “EU Acquis Communautaire”, the rights and obligations shared by all EU countries. With regard to the energy sector, it means that Macedonia has to adopt the European directives on renewable energy and promote solar thermal energy. The current incentive programme for purchasing and installing solar collector systems in households ended at the beginning of June this year. Macedonia’s Minister of Economy, Valon Saraqini, has already announced that there would be a new governmental subsidy scheme for solar thermal energy starting in September. The programme’s budget may even be partly funded by the EU. Details, however, are still sketchy. The photo shows a residential apartment complex in Skopje with solar installations from the Macedonian collector manufacturer Camel Solar.
