In South East European countries the current energy use is environmentally damaging and unsustainable, and many of the existing environmental problems are closely linked to energy systems. However, both Albania and Bosnia and Herzegovina have substantial renewable energy resources that could be harnessed to meet their energy needs.

Project activities include research, policy analysis and institutional building, including detailed needs assessment and specific partnerships agreement to be implemented during the inception phase, the implementation of pilot projects to improve access to renewable technologies for rural tourism and agriculture, the dissemination and scaling-up of intervention through the capacity building and theawareness raising in producers, local communities and the general public.
