On 18-19th October, the high-level renewables investment conference Energy Week Western Balkans 2023 will take place at the new location, Porto Montenegro.
Launched in 2022 by a UK-based Invest In Network, Energy Week quickly became the region’s premier event bringing together state authorities, regulators, utilities and TSOs from Montenegro, Serbia, North Macedonia, Bosnia and Hercegovina, Albania, and Kosovo as well as IFIs/DFIs and a large pool of global developers targeting this lucrative market.
Energy Week Western Balkans is well-positioned to encourage regional cooperation as well as to support the transition to secure, clean and affordable energy. Utilising vast renewable energy potential, increasing interconnection and facilitating system flexibility and market liberalisation are of paramount importance. And while investing in renewable energy in the region is getting momentum, cooperation and interconnectivity become key to reaching targets set by the countries.
Among the topics to be discussed in 2023:
- The regulatory framework needed to ensure just transition;
- Auctions and private PPAs;
- Renewable energy revenue streams;
- The most important developments and new construction projects in the wind and solar industry;
- Encouraging small hydropower installations vs. repowering of existing large hydropower;
- Innovative opportunities explored in the regions, such as floating solar and agrivoltaism;
- Energy storage solutions and many more.
