The KEP Project "Supporting the Albanian Regulatory Authority to improve the efficiency of the wholesale electricity market" started with a launch event and workshop in Tirana on 29-30 March.
The project, financed by the CEI Fund at the EBRD contributed by Italy, is a capacity-building action primarily aimed at supporting the Albanian Energy Regulatory Authority in the creation of a well-functioning wholesale electricity market in the country, including the entry into full operation of ALPEX (the Albanian Power Exchange).
Project actions will be implemented in the framework of the integration of energy markets in the Western Balkans. Therefore, representatives of energy authorities from the Region will be involved in selected project activities as observers.
The project is led by the Balkan Energy School (BES), an association of energy regulators whose members are ARERA (Italy), DERK (Bosnia and Herzegovina), ERC (North Macedonia), ERE (Albania), and REGAGEN (Montenegro).
The BES was born in the framework of three previous KEP projects promoted and coordinated by ARERA that have enabled the Balkan regulatory authorities to better understand the EU legal framework on market integration. They aimed of supporting the harmonisation of the regulatory framework in the Western Balkans and the development of the energy market of the Region as well as its integration at European level.
