Support for Low-Emission Development in South Eastern Europe (SLED)Uploaded: 10 of December, 2015

The objective of the project “Support for Low-Emission Development in South Eastern Europe (SLED)” is to help policy makers in Albania, the former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia, Montenegro and Serbia to set realistic but ambitious decarbonisation pathways for their electricity sectors up to 2030. In the case of Montenegro and Albania, project results were also used in the assessment process for the Intended Nationally Determined Contributions (INDC).
The assessed scenarios (Reference – REF; Currently Planned Policies – CPP; and Ambitious – AMB) use different assumptions related to electricity demand and supply. Supply side factors include the deployment levels of renewable energy sources for electricity (RES-E), changes in the conventional power generation sector, and the applied energy and carbon taxation rates. On the demand side, the energy efficiency ambition levels define the consumption scenarios. The scenarios and the assumptions were agreed with the main stakeholders in the project countries (relevant ministries, transmission system operator, regulator and electricity experts).
