Stable Plan for transport sector is the new project which will be implemented for energy saving purposes and for a stable development of transport network in Albania, announced the Minister of Transports and Infrastructure, Edmond Haxhinasto.
Ministry of Transport signed an agreement with Price Waterhouse Coopers Advisory for the compilation of this plan, whose main objective is the preparation of a key document for the Ministry in meeting its objectives. This plan will make possible energy saving in the transport industry in country and will set new development objectives for the national and local transport networks.
This sector spends more energy than other sectors, about 40% of the total amount of the consumed energy and this plan comes as the government’s engagement in the implementation of policies for the efficient use of energy in the framework of “National Strategy on Energy” (2008-2020). The project will be compiled for an eight month’s period and with the support of European Bank for Reconstruction and Development.
