Action plans, reports and statements

Albania

Day of Accession
30 June 2006
Status
Contracting Party

As a Contracting Party to the Energy Community Treaty, Albania has the obligation to implement the energy acquis in force. Parallel to the adoption of secondary legislation, the implementation of the acquis gives rise to diverse reporting obligations.

Particularly the implementation of the renewable energy and energy efficiency acquis is based on comprehensive, multi-annual action plans. As a first step, the Parties draft and adopt the action plans that set the steps for achieving the negotiated targets. They are subsequently obliged to report about the progress achieved in the form of regular progress reports.

Starting in 2019, Albania will also have a reporting obligation pursuant Annex VIII.B of the Large Combustion Plan Directive 2001/80/EC as amended by Decision 2013/05/MC-EnC.

This page displays the reports and action plans submitted by Albania to the Secretariat so far. Pursuant to the Secretariat's documents policy, no document older than ten years is displayed online. 

  • Statements

    Security of supply statements

    According to Article 29 of the Treaty, the Contracting Parties are to adopt Security of Supply Statements starting one year after its entry into force (July 2007). The statements are to describe in particular the diversity of supply, technological security, and geographic origin of imported fuels. The Parties have the obligation to update the statements and notify the Secretariat every two years.

    Albania submitted the Secretariat statements solely in 2007 and 2009.

  • National energy efficiency action plan

    National Energy Efficiency Action Plans

    The National Energy Efficiency Action Plans (NEEAPs) provide a framework for the development of a national strategy on how best to augment the level of energy efficiency. The NEEAPs, to be submitted to the Secretariat every two years, also provide a platform for the Parties to evaluate the energy savings resulting from the implementation of these strategies. Whilst the first NEEAPs covered the period 2010-2012, the second NEEAPs set the line of action for 2013-2015 pursuant to the Energy Services Directive 2006/32/EC.   

    The Energy Services Directive 2006/32/EC was repealed by the Energy Efficiency Directive 2012/27/EU. Incorporated into the acquis in October 2015, the Energy Efficiency Directive mandates the Parties to report and evaluate a set of measures that contribute to the 2018 national target for final energy savings. The Third NEEAPs should accordingly cover the period 2016-2018 and be submitted to the Secretariat by the end of June 2016 at the latest.

    Progress reports

    Article 24(1) of  Directive 2012/27/EU lays down the Contracting Parties' reporting obligations on energy efficiency. By 30 June each year as of 2017, they are to send to the Secretariat the data on energy efficiency targets, indicators, consumption trends and key Energy Efficiency Directive implementing measures.

  • National renewable action plan (NREAP)

    National renewable action plan (NREAP)

    Article 4 of Directive 2009/28/EC requires the adoption of a national renewable action plan (NREAP) setting out the Contracting Parties national targets for the share of energy from renewable sources consumed in transport, electricity and heating and cooling in 2020 and adequate measures to be taken to achieve those national overall targets.

    Progress reports

    Article 22 (1) of Directive 2009/28/EC lays down the Contracting Parties' reporting obligation on renewable energy. By 31 December 2014 and every two years thereafter, reports on the progress towards the targets have to be submitted to the Secretariat.

  • National Energy and Climate Plan

    National Energy and Climate Plan (NECP)

    The EU's Clean Energy Package includes a robust governance system, under which each Member State is required to establish integrated 10-year National Energy and Climate Plans (NECPs). Based on a common structure, the NECPs outline how the Member States will achieve their respective targets on all dimensions of the energy union, including a longer-term view towards 2050.

    The NECPs follow a life cycle perspective: draft plan / recommendation / final plan / assessment / update of the plan, and in parallel the drafting of a plan for the next period slowly begins.

  • Nationally determined contributions

    Nationally determined contributions

    Adopted by 196 parties at COP 21, the Paris Agreement is a legally binding international treaty on climate change. It works on a 5-year cycle of increasingly ambitious climate action carried out by countries. Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs) summarise countries’ plans to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions under the Paris Agreement. All Contracting Parties, with the exception of Kosovo*, ratified the Agreement and submitted their initial NDCs to the UNFCCC. 

    The Agreement calls the parties to submit new or updated NDCs every five years. NDC2s include more ambitious targets than the NDC1s and encompass all emission sectors and GHGs other than carbon dioxide. Beyond mitigation, the majority of NDC2s, also focus on adaptation, financial support and gender sensitivity. The actions contained in the NDC2 should pave the way towards meeting the political pledges under the 2020 Sofia Declaration to work towards the 2050 target of a carbon-neutral continent together with the European Union. The ambition level and targets of the NDC2s should be harmonized with those reflected in the NECPs.

    Albania’s revised National Determined Contribution (NDC2) was submitted to the UNFCCC in October 2021. It includes actions on AFOLU, gender and adaptation, with focus on coastal zones. The target is a reduction of 20,9% GHG emissions targets compared to business-as-usual scenario.

  • Electricity generation tenders

    Electricity generation tenders

    Article 8(3) of Directive 2009/72/EC requires that details of the tendering procedure for means of generating capacity and energy efficiency/demand-side management measures are published in a dedicated section of the web site of the Energy Community at least six months prior to the closing date for tenders.

    So far Albania has submitted one tender for publication.
     

    15 June 2021: Public call to support onshore wind power projects

    Subject matter:

    In June 2021, Albania  started a two-stage tender for the selection of several onshore wind power projects with a capacity between 10 MW to 75 MW each, with site-location identified by developers, which will benefit from support measures. Through this tender process, the Ministry of Infrastructure and Energy will select wind projects totaling 100 MW that will benefit for 15 years from fixed purchase price which will be converted into Contract for Difference (CfD) once a day-ahead market is operational.

    Briefing session: A conference for prospective bidders is scheduled for 24 November 2021, 14:00 - 16:45 (CET) by the Ministry of Infrastructure and Energy. 
    Deadline: The deadline for responding to the Request for Qualification (RFQ)  is 13 June 2022.
