With the support of the US Agency for International Development, the partners from Illinois and the Energy Regulatory Office of Kosovo engaged in consultations and roundtable discussions on renewable energy sources, monitoring service quality, tariffs and other areas of significant importance to the ERO. Additional interactions with the renewable energy suppliers and major Illinois utilities offered informative solutions to emerging issues.
Since the adoption of regulations establishing feed-in tariffs in Kosovo, renewable energy has gained much importance for policymakers and project developers. Of significant importance to ERO's evolving regulatory role is assuming various monitoring functions for upcoming privatization transactions of generation assets and the distribution sector, and balancing all relevant interests, including the investors and socially-disadvantaged population.
