Germanwatch, together with Balkan Green Foundation, has published the study "Phasing in Renewables. Towards a prosperous and sustainable energy future in Kosovo: challenges and possible solutions". Ten authors from the spheres of science, consulting and practice outline challenges and possible solutions for Kosovo based on experiences in other countries.
The study throws a light on three kinds of challenges: Technological, economic and juridical, as well as possible chances of circular migration.
The authors offer best practice and solutions, which are intended to be a basis for discussion and an inspirational source for Kosovo's discourse on the energy transition to come. Various benefits of an energy transition for Kosovo are depicted and analysed: Technological innovation, economic growth, jobs, return of the diaspora, stabilisation of rural areas and peace building through regional cooperation.
The study has been published within the project "A multi-stakeholder partnership for the energy transition in Kosovo", which is supported by Engagement Global with funding from the German Federal Ministry of Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ).
