Bosnia and Herzegovina to focus on coal phase-out in Energy Community presidency

Ambassadors from EU countries, Energy Community Contracting Parties and Observer Countries representatives, high-level delegates from international organisations and members of the diplomatic corps met in Vienna on Wednesday (14 February) to mark the start of Bosnia and Herzegovina’s Presidency of the Energy Community.

Bosnia and Herzegovina assumed the rotating Presidency of the Energy Community for this year on 1 January 2024.

In its role as the Presidency holder, Bosnia and Herzegovina aims to strengthen energy sector reforms, with a particular focus on energy and climate policy, the Energy Community Secretariat said in a press release.

The Presidency is said to prioritise adopting comprehensive energy and climate plans, facilitating a just transition away from coal, coordinating decarbonisation initiatives, implementing regional guarantee of origin systems, and addressing trade barriers in renewables.

Additionally, other key priorities on the Presidency’s agenda are said to be the integration of energy markets, the completion of the Clean Energy Package, discussions regarding the Carbon Border Adjustment Mechanism (CBAM) and the fulfilment of various obligations.
