Project activities will encompass 5 municipalities in Albania, situated in Shkoder region in the North part of the country, which are characterized by large rural population (89%), mountainous areas and abundance of natural resources. In Bosnia and Herzegovina it encompasses 7 municipalities in BiH located along the river Drina (Foča, Ustikolina, Goražde, Bratunac and Srebrenica) and upper Neretva Valleys (Konjic, Trnovo), which are characterized by great potential for renewable energy production due to natural resources (wood, water, sunlight).
This project is strongly linked to presently ongoing project “Renewable Energy Technologies in Albania and Bosnia and Herzegovina”, supported by IFAD – International Fund for Agricultural Development, which aims to provide renewable energy equipment for agriculture and tourism sectors.
The project will contribute to the capacity building on the renewable energies resources of different local key players, such as manufacturers, installers, dealers and ordinary people, offering tailor-made trainings for technicians, courses and awareness for the population about advantages of using renewable energies.
