Bosnia and Herzegovina and Serbia are unlikely to meet the 2020 renewables targets, the Energy Community Secretariat said.

This week, the Energy Community Secretariat hosted three consecutive events on how to boost renewables and facilitate their integration into the energy market to enable the energy transition. Finding the right policies and measures for a conducive renewables framework remains critical as many Contracting Parties have fallen behind in meeting their 2020 renewables targets.

With respect to the 10% renewable energy target for the transport sector, no Contracting Party will meet the target, with present shares at or close to 0%. Complete status updates for each Contracting Party will be provided by the Secretariat’s Annual Implementation Report 2019, to be published next week, Vladimir Spasic writes for Balkan Green Energy News.

According to the Secretariat, the lack of reliable statistical data, especially on biomass used for heating, was identified as a key bottleneck for tracking the Contracting Parties’ progress accurately, but also for building credible forecasts for the integrated national energy climate plans (NECPs) to 2030.
