Key Recommendations of the Thematic Working Group on Energy

These recommendations stem from consultations with stakeholders cross all Western Balkan countries and the EU within the Thematic Working Group (TWG) on Energy. Discussions focused primarily on the importance of the rule of law and human rights including the need to extend and revise the Treaty Establishing Energy Community, and a just and inclusive energy transition. The process involved two consultation meetings with 40 regional experts and other stakeholders, as well as a public conference held in September. This conference aimed to analyse the primary findings from the consultation process and to establish a set of recommendations for enhancing energy reforms. The Renewables and Environmental Regulatory Institute (RERI) facilitated the consultation process, alongside a core group of energy experts from each of the six Western Balkan countries.
