Granting rights and A&M approach to HPPs Annalise by Dr Lorenc Gordani Legal Adviser in Albania Energy Market [pj-news-ticker] Today, Albanian total installed capacity in hydropower hasreached at 2100 MW. Further, projects granted, but yet not developed, at 1785MW, and the hydropower potential studied, still unexploited, at around 615 MW.Therefore, in a synthesis, considering the theoretical potential by 4500 MW,today only 46% are exploited. As it is worth noting that the country can offerone of the lower cost of production (LCOE) of hydropower in the region. Therefore, taking into consideration the large number of awarded projects but still not developed, in this analyse, firstly, based in my daily empirical experience, it will concentrated in a briefly analysis of the legal framework on procedures to obtain a HPP, for the better…

Quo vadis hydropower? Clean Energy package, Water Framework Directive, Energy Union   [pj-news-ticker] Actual political development at RENEXPO® INTERHYDRO, November 29th and 30th, Salzburg Salzburg, November 2018: Hydropower is a major contributor to generating renewable power in the European Union: more than 50% of the electricity generated from renewable energy sources comes from hydropower plants. However, hydropower development in EU Member States is often thwarted by the provisions of the Water Framework Directive. The ongoing evaluation process of this EU legislation offers a chance for the European hydropower sector to promote its interests and key demands. Since more than three years, EU Member States and institutions develop and negotiate the so called EU Energy Union which foresees a fundamental transformation of Europe’s energy system towards a system based on renewable energy,…

However, referring to official data on concessions (that do not include authorisation procedure) of the last report of NANR, and further the one of MIE on March 2018, as well as the report of ERE June 2018, it can be roughly said: ▶ Total installed capacity reached around the 2,100 MW, with…
