Albania assumed leading role in power market development, Energy Community Deputy Director says

Representatives of the Albanian Energy Regulatory Authority (ERE) held a meeting with the Energy Community Secretariat on 19 April to discuss further developments in Albania’s electricity market, following the launch of the day-ahead market operated by ALPEX on 11 April.

In particular, both sides discussed the transposition and implementation of the electricity market integration package adopted by the Energy Community in December 2022, the designation of the Nominated Energy Market Operator (NEMO), market coupling projects (including prospects for joining the EU single day-ahead coupling) and the monitoring role of ERE.

“Albania has again assumed a leading role in the power market development recently. The challenge will now be ensuring that ALPEX becomes a liquid trading place, used by public and private players alike. ERE’s role in this and the integration of Albania in the European power markets has been and will be crucial,” said Dirk Buschle, Deputy Director of the Energy Community Secretariat.

“By taking over the responsibility to issue guarantees of origin for electricity produced from renewable sources under the regional system established by the Secretariat, ERE will also make sure that Albania’s wealth of green energy is given a proper value for the sake of the European Green Deal,” he added.
