Solar energy determinant on the policy 2020 Author: Dr. Lorenc Gordani Legal Adviser on Energy Market The development of alternative renewable energies, and especially those from the sun and wind, in order to diversify and optimize the energy production in Albania, have become the main objective in the strategic energy sector. In this regard, while is being implemented in practice the first floor of photovoltaics by 20 MW, the renewed action plan (NREAP 2020) has triple the total amount of photovoltaic capacity, ranging from 40 MW at 120 MW, and doubling as far as that of the wind. A strategic development that come as part of an agreement between the energy ministry and the EBRD signed the beginning of May 2017, and then between the EBRD and the Energy Secretariat…

Albanian prospects towards smart development Dr. Lorenc Gordani, 5 April 2018 Albania is part of the global efforts to address climate change on the promote the transition to low carbon economies worldwide, including those taken in framework of Western Balkans region (WB6). Early the country has adopted an Integrated Planning System (IPS) to provide a set of operating principles for facilitating coordinated, coherent and integrated government policy planning. On above, the new Albania’s Power Sector Law and followed legislation in sustainable energies has provided direction for long-term planning in the energy sector that reflects the development goals of the country. The new Res law has putted the objectives for the energy sector achieving a 38% target. This will also help to reduce energy dependency on imports to 65% in 2020…

Photovoltaics an alternative to unlocking the energy market Author: Dr Lorenc Gordani Published, 9th April 2018 The recent interventions of the ministry and regulatory authority of the energy have already opened the way for the network to receive energy input produced by businesses and households through distributed resources based on the net metering scheme. To enable the above challenging process, the commercial and technical issues regulations remain essential. The main reason why many countries liberalized their power sectors and unbundled vertically integrated utilities was to introduce competition in the generation sector as well as to attract new investors in this activity. However, this process has been followed with different speeds, and the need to find a model is faced by hundreds of experts from across the globe over the past…
