Balkan Countries Agree To EU 2030 Clean Energy, Emission Reduction Targets

16.01.2015 | |

Prospective members of the European Union have agreed to honour the targets to enhance renewable energy, energy efficiency, and reduce greenhouse gas emissions that were recently agreed to by the EU for 2030.


Balkan countries have pledged to meet the targets to reduce GHG emissions by 40% by 1990 levels, increase their share of renewable energy to 27%, and improve energy efficiency by 27% by 2030. Serbia and Macedonia are preparing to implement national policies to the fulfil these targets as they look to enter the European Union.


Arable land is a significant source of GHG emissions in Macedonia and the government there is working on an energy policy to address this issue. The major sources of methane emissions include solid waste disposal, wastewater, and waste disposal.


The majority of the emissions in Serbia come from the energy sector, which is also dependent, to a great extent, on imports. The country is looking to implement emissions trading to curb emissions. The government is planning to improve emissions monitoring and a reporting system to develop a national emissions inventory that would serve as the foundation for the emissions trading scheme.
