The preparation of the Integrated National Energy and Climate Plan of the Republic of Serbia is also the preparation of a key document that will determine the dynamics and steps in the energy transition process of Serbia.
The aforementioned plan, as well as reforms in the energy sector and improvement of the legislative framework in the field of energy, were discussed by the Minister of Mining and Energy, Dubravka Đedović, and the Director of the Energy Community Secretariat, Artur Lorkovski.
On that occasion, the minister confirmed the importance of developing this plan and said that it will harmonize the goals in the field of renewable energy sources (RES), increasing energy efficiency and reducing greenhouse gas emissions.
She stated that the goal is to obtain the highest quality document through public discussion and consultation with the Energy Community, adding that it is expected that amendments to the Law on the Use of OEI will be adopted soon, which will create conditions for conducting auctions for the production of electricity from renewable sources.
According to her, the changes will make it possible to increase RES capacities, while at the same time ensuring the reliable operation of the power system, which is crucial for the sustainability of the energy transition.
The meeting also discussed planned activities related to the transfer of European directives into domestic legislation, further steps in reforming energy companies and applying regulations related to the functioning of the natural gas and electricity markets.
Lorkovski said that Serbia is progressing on the way to an economy with zero carbon dioxide emissions, and he expressed his satisfaction with the fact that the amendments to the Law on the Use of RES that pave the way for the first auctions and encourage the use of renewable energy sources have been made.
“The Secretariat welcomes the imminent finalization of the draft of the integrated national plan for energy and climate and is open to providing assistance to Serbia in the design and implementation of that plan,” said the Director of the Secretariat.
