Renewable Energy Sources and Energy Efficiency in Albania


  • Skerdilajd Bajramaj


The purpose of this paper is to underline the scientific potential of Albania in the field of RES and EE and show through a survey and analysis, concrete ways and means on how to fulfill in general the obligations arising from the signing of the Energy Community Treaty and the Third Package Directives: 2009/72/EC and 2009/73/EC, and also in compliance with the EU Directive 2009/28/EC “On the enhancement of the use of energy from renewable resources” and Directive 2012/27/EU of the European Parliament and of the Council of 25 October 2012 on energy efficiency, amending Directives 2009/125/EC and 2010/30/EU and repealing in particular the Directives 2004/8/EC and 2006/32/EC Text with the EEA relevance. The transpose of European Union legislation by national legislation and the reform that has accompanied it have significantly improved some of the key indicators. The results arising from a statistical and empirical study are in general very encouraging for the future of the energy sector. Also, the situation in which we are and the measures taken so far make us optimistic that Albania will fulfill due obligations towards international institutions in particular to the field of renewable energy and energy efficiency.
