News / Green Energy Days in Kosovo marked with 32 recommendations for sustainability
BIRN Kosovo hosted a high-level conference in Prishtina/Priština on Thursday as part of its second edition of the Green Energy Days. BIRN also used the event to launch a new position paper on Kosovo’s National Energy and Climate Plan (NECP) that included 32 concrete recommendations on how to move the country towards an energy efficient and 100% renewable economy.
Western Balkan countries, including Kosovo, have agreed to produce NECPs to help plan their energy futures in an integrated way that is in line with the European Union’s Energy Union policy. As part of the Sofia Declaration on the Green Agenda signed in 2020, they have also committed to ending the use of all fossil fuels by 2050 and reducing greenhouse gas emissions by 2030. While specific energy targets for 2030 have yet to be finalised, the position paper lays out clear proposals for decarbonisation, based on close market integration, flexible electricity generation, and electrification of Kosovo’s transport and heating sectors.
The high-level conference was held by BIRN Kosovo and its partners as part of the Green Energy Days, within the “Europeanisation of Kosovo’s Environmental Agenda” project that is supported by the European Union Office in Kosovo and implemented by Bankwatch, BIRN Kosovo, ERA Group and TV Mreža.
