Among other things, Minister Bekteshi stressed that the Government is committed to developing policies that will contribute to the energy transition.
We are fully committed to developing policies that will contribute to the energy transition, through new investments in renewable energy sources and fostering energy efficiency. Only through the energy transition can we boost environmental protection, said Minister Bekteshi.
Minister Bekteshi also announced that after ten years we will completely switch to the production of electricity from renewable sources, ie coal production will stop.
