The EU is building an energy union to ensure that Europe’s energy supply is safe, viable and accessible to all. It can boost the economy and attract investments, creating new job opportunities. This requires wiser energy use and effective measures to fight climate change. The state of the energy union report shows progress made on a transition to a low-carbon, secure and competitive EU economy. EU rules on the governance of the energy union and climate action requires that EU countries develop integrated national energy and climate plans (NECPs) covering 2021 – 2030.
Bosnia and Herzegovina shall contribute to the EU’s binding target for:
greenhouse gas emissions and the binding annual limits;
32 % renewable energy in 2030
32,5 % energy efficiency by 2030, based on either primary or final energy consumption, primary or final energy savings, or energy intensity.
shall ensure the diversification of energy sources and supply from third countries, the purpose of which may be to reduce energy import dependency and the flexibility of the national energy system.
increase the level of electricity interconnectivity that the member state aims for in 2030 in consideration of the electricity interconnection target for 2030 of at least 15 %.
key electricity and gas transmission infrastructure projects, and, where relevant, modernization projects, that are necessary for the achievement of objectives and targets under the five dimensions of the Energy Union Strategy
Bosnia and Herzegovina shall ensure aspects of the internal energy market such as increasing system flexibility, market integration and coupling, aimed at increasing the tradeable capacity of existing interconnectors, smart grids, aggregation, demand response, storage, distributed generation, mechanisms for dispatching, re-dispatching and curtailment, and real-time price signals.
Bosnia and Herzegovina shall set-up the national objectives and funding targets for public and, where available, private research and innovation relating to the Energy Union.
