As announced during the Sustainable Development Week earlier this week in Pristina, the Secretariat submitted to the Kosovo* ministry of environment a draft new law on climate change. This new law would be transposing Regulation (EU) No 525/2013 on a mechanism for monitoring and reporting greenhouse gas emissions and the Recommendation of the Ministerial Council of the Energy Community on preparing for the development of integrated national energy and climate plans. The Secretariat expects discussions at technical level on this draft in the coming months.
During last year’s Ministerial Council, the Contracting Parties of the Energy Community committed to setting targets for renewable energy, energy efficiency and greenhouse gas emission reduction. The Secretariat committed to support the Contracting Parties in drafting adequate legislation, especially in the context of the preparation of integrated National Energy and Climate Plans.
