    /15th August 2019, RENEWABLE MARKET WATCHTM/ Energy Strategy of the Republic of Kosovo 2013-2022 is the main document outlining energy policies and development objectives of the energy sector, in line with international standards on sustainable development, environmental protection and social wellbeing, which aims to maximize profits from the use of the country’s energy resources. The Energy Strategy aims to establish effective mechanisms for implementing requirements set in this strategy, taking into account the effective management of existing energy resources and environmental protection. It focuses on enhancing the security of supply in line with European standards and diversification of energy sources. This strategy aims to encourage rational use of energy and increased energy efficiency, utilization of renewable energy sources, the introduction of new technologies while respecting international standards of environmental protection and community care. Kosovo has solar, wind, hydro and biomass resources available that are more than sufficient to meet the country's energy supply needs, has been mentioned in the regular update of 'Western Balkans Solar Photovoltaic (PV) Power Market Outlook 2019÷2028'.

    /29th January 2021, RENEWABLE MARKET WATCHTM/ The Government of Kosovo has recently signed an agreement with IFC to help attract a private partner to develop a 50 MW solar photovoltaic (PV) power plant under a structure. The Kosovo Solar project will be implemented through a competitive tender to achieve procurement of lower-cost solar energy. The Republic of Kosovo has a population of 1.8 million and the energy generation in the country is heavily dependent on two old lignite coal-fired power plants with high CO2 emissions. The coal-fired power plants, which cover 91% of the energy generation, reach the end of their operational life and will soon need serious investments for modernisation or decommissioning. Therefore, Kosovo needs viable energy alternatives to build a more flexible power generation strategy with the increased use of renewable energy. Kosovo has solar, wind, hydro and biomass resources available that are more than sufficient to meet the country's energy supply needs, has been mentioned in the regular update of 'Western Balkans Solar Photovoltaic (PV) Power Market Outlook 2021÷2030'.
