World Bank empathises support for Serbia’s decarbonisation

On Thursday (2 March), Serbia’s Minister of Mining and Energy, Dubravka Đedović, held a meeting with the Director of the World Bank office in Serbia, Nikola Pontar, to discuss cooperation in Serbia’s energy transition.

“Serbia is firmly committed to the energy transition and together with our partners, including the World Bank, we are taking steps to make the transition to clean energy financially sustainable and socially just,” said Minister Đedović.

The Minister highlighted her government’s “priority projects” in accelerating the use of renewable energy including reversible hydropower plants, and noted the faster development of the planned hydropower plants, wind and solar power plants projects, carried out by the Electric Power Company of Serbia. 

“It is necessary to carry out a fair transition towards cleaner energy sources, but also to take care of all employees and local communities,” the Minister added.

The Director of the World Bank’s Serbia office emphasised the support of the World Bank to Serbia in implementing reforms in the energy and mining sectors, especially in decarbonisation.

Minister Đedović emphasised that the construction of new capacities, which use renewable energy sources, should be coordinated with the development of the transmission and distribution power network.
