Scaling-Up Distributed Solar PV in Kosovo: Market Analysis

This project provides an in-depth look at the current market for distributed solar PV in the Republic of Kosovo.

Despite having among the highest shares of coal-fired power in its electricity mix of any country in the world, there are signs that opportunities in the country’s renewable energy sector are starting to open up, driven by a combination of factors including increasingly cost-competitive solar PV, easy access to capital, and a new transmission line connecting the region to its neighbor, Albania.

As a result, investments in customer-sited solar PV projects are becoming economic in the country, creating new opportunities in the country’s electricity sector.

This report captures the key trends that are re-shaping the investment landscape for small and medium-sized renewable energy projects in the country and provides a set of recommendations to help unlock the market’s full potential.

The full report is available both in English, and in Albanian.
