CISOLAR 2019 submit new opportunities for developing solar energy in Central and Eastern Europe [pj-news-ticker] Dear Partners and Colleagues, It is a great pleasure to communicate, the forthcoming 8th International Solar Energy Conference and Trade Show of Central and Eastern Europe on April, 16-18 in Kyiv. CISOLAR 2019 is the main business event of region in solar energy field devoted to latest technology, trends and investments opportunities. Today solar energy development is one of priority areas for investors in the world and Eastern Europe in particular. As of October, 2018 in Ukraine more than 1,06 GW capacity of megawatt-type solar power station were built and by end of the year this indicator will increase to 1,2 GW. In addition to large scale projects, the segment of small solar stations, including…

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…

HPP sector towards large and more sustainable developments Annalise by Dr Lorenc Gordani Legal Adviser in Albania Energy Market [metaslider id="17560"] [pj-news-ticker] Albania like the rest of the Western Balkan countries, has continues encourage foreign capital to enter in the energy sector. Investments that have already reached about $ 1 billion, with growth in real term at 10% in 2017. The latest data shows that electricity produced by private sector have reached 33.7% of net domestic production. A high level that have led economic growth for the second consecutive quarter above the 4%. Considering, that the point of reference for any investment decision has to do with the rate of return, the comparative advantages of the Albanian hydroelectric (HPP) are numerous. At first, they are linked to the great natural…

Opening of the market launches the relevant projects Author: Dr Lorenc Gordani Legal Adviser in Albania Energy Market [pj-news-ticker] Albania, like the rest of the Western Balkan countries, intends to promote the liberalization of the energy market and complete regional integration. Further, the fulfilment of the renewable and security targets of the country, determined by the absence of additional fiscal space available, has pushed continually to encourage the investors from the private financial system, especially the foreign capital to enter in energy sector. The foreign investments that have already reached about 1 billion euro by 2017, stimulating a growth to 3.8%. The largest share of foreign investment stocks, with over 70% is focused in energy (including oil and gas). The above mixed with the favourable technical potential in hydroelectric investments…

Time for a paradigm shift from hydro to photovoltaic! Author: Dr Lorenc Gordani Legal Adviser in Albania Energy Market [pj-news-ticker] Dear Partners and Colleagues, To whom is interested in knowing more on the excellent opportunities in opening on the photovoltaic market in Albania, with a great pleasure I would see to recommend the Expo & Forum - 2nd Edition 2018. Albanian legal framework recently is prepared by fully responding to the concerns verified so far in practice, aiming for a shift paradigm towards photovoltaics. The fact is that the costs of photovoltaics are continuously decreasing. However, new the skills are needed to make that hydroelectric do not remain the only one that traditionally seen deployment in Albania. Therefore, come to visit the most prominent companies involved in photovoltaics, that will…

Time for a paradigm shift from hydro to photovoltaic? Author: Dr Lorenc Gordani Legal Adviser in Albania Energy Market 1. A Snapshot in Albanian Generation Capacity Albania is fully dependent on hydropower for electricity generation; nearly 100 per cent of the country’s domestically produced electricity comes from hydropower. The mountainous nation is home to eight major river systems and more 140 mid-small fluvial streams. The major of them, Drin River located in northern Albania, hosts a relevant cascade with four hydropower stations for an installed capacity around 1,400 MW. Notwithstanding more than 25 years of efforts to develop the private sector of generation, the public incumbent still represents around 65% of the country’s total electricity production. The remaining 100 MW of installed capacity, distributed over the country, have passed in…
