Power Purchase Agreements (PPAs) in the Western Balkans – opportunities and obstacles


Event date

Prishtina, Hotel Sirius Room: Conference room Agim Ramadani
Short description

The war in Ukraine is pushing Europe to get out of fossil fuels’ import dependence as soon as possible which means building vast amounts of renewables has to become a reality now – and not tomorrow. Moreover, renewables can provide a mitigation option against vulnerability of markets and end customers to fossil price volatility, and they can also contribute towards energy independence and security of supply.

Hence, significant wind and PV capacities need to be installed in the Western Balkans in a relatively short timeframe. But the countries are still facing numerous barriers which hinder scaling up renewables’ expansion.


What is the role of the market in these times?
How can market-based routes to renewables expansion help with the scaling up of projects in Kosovo* and the Western Balkans?
What kind of a market framework is needed that will support merchant renewables and Power Purchase Agreements (PPAs) in deploying additional projects?
What are the overall advantages of green PPAs and how can we incentivise their utilisation?
Last but not least, what type of policy options do we need in the region to address the barriers hindering renewable PPA utilisation?

All these questions about the role of PPAs and the market in supporting renewables will be discussed during this public event in Pristina, Kosovo*, on 10 May 2022. Agora Energiewende organises it together with enervis energy advisors and our partner from Kosovo*, the Institute for Development Policy (INDEP).

The participation is free of charge. You can register using the registration buttons at the top and bottom of this page.
