Western Balkans Renewable Energy Focus

March, 2011

The Western Balkans Region (Serbia, Bosnia & Herzegovina, Macedonia, Kosovo, Montenegro and Albania) has a hugh demand in energy investments as on the one hand key infrastructure needs significant upgrade and on the other hand energy consumption is growing steadily.

Various renewable energy resources are available, but are currently mostly not efficiently used due to a lack of local investors and financial resources.

SAM has therefore started an initiative throughout the Region that shall support local investors with providing professional project management expertise and financial capacity, but shall also help attract international investors.
