As part of a country mission to Serbia, Energy Community Secretariat Director Arthur Lorkowski discussed the state of energy market reforms and plans for decarbonization with Serbian Minister of Mining and Energy Dubravka Djedovic.

The discussions focused on the transposition of the new electricity package, developments in the process of preparation of National Energy and Climate Plan (NECP) and progress in facilitating security of gas supply.

During the discussions, Director Lorkowski said that Serbia is advancing on its path towards net- zero economy. He also commended the drafted amendments to the Law on the Use of Renewable Energy Sources, which are paving the way for first RES auctions and boosting the deployment of renewables.

The Secretariat also welcomes the soon finalization of the draft NECP and repeats its offer to assist Serbia in designing and implementing the plan.

Minister Djedovic said that the National Energy and Climate Plan (NECP) is the key document for determining the dynamics and key steps in the process of energy transition in Serbia and to ensure harmonization of our targets in increasing electricity production from RES, improving energy efficiency and reduction of greenhouse gas emissions. She noted that Serbia wants to be ambitious, but realistic in setting our goals.

She said that she expects that the Parliament will soon adopt the amendments to the Law on the Use of Renewable Energy Sources, which will allow the country to increase capacities from RES while maintaining the security of energy supply, which is of great importance for sustainable energy transition.
