Albania and several Eastern Europe countries will participate in a USAID’s program for security and transparency in the energy market. According to official sources, USAID is launching a program which will provide assistance for energy regulators in preparing the necessary directions for promoting the best practices for retail and wholesale electrical energy market.
The program aims to create a collaborative atmosphere for regional electrical energy regulators in order to exchange their experiences with each other and American electrical energy experts. This initiative is a new opportunity for region’s countries to enhance their cooperation and improve practices in the energy sector.
Albania’s energy is entirely relied in hydropower plants built near to water sources which furnish them and the sector is seen as a priority by the government. Within 2 or 3 next years, Albania will establish interconnection electrical energy lines with Kosovo and Macedonia, a project that will ease the cooperation of these countries in the energy sector. The establishment of TAP project is a momentum for Albania since before its implementation the country will compile a master plan for the gasification of the country.
