The energy challenge and energy alternative sources

7 September

Based almost wholly in the country’s water sources, the Albanian energy sector faces today the challenge to diversify sources of energy production in the country.

Co-Plan has committed itself to drafting and implementing the project: “Sustainable energies for Albania”. The initiative was announced in a round table held on 7 September at the Rogner Hotel. The discussions centered on the topic “Can Albania avail itself of the latest technology developments?” The round table laid emphasis on the challenge as a way to stimulate concerted action and cooperation by responsible institutions and sectors. The round table was attended by experts of the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Energy; the Ministry of Environment, Forests and Water Management; the National Energy Agency; the research institutions in the country, the Polytechnic University, etc.

The topics for discussion included:

  • The need to explore possibilities of decentralizing energy production based on the latest technologies;
  • The significance of renewable sources of energy (including water) as long-term alternatives for the future;
  • Identification of projects to be carried out in the context of larger European ventures.
