SEERMAP Final Conference14 of September, 2017

The South East Europe Electricity Roadmap (SEERMAP) project develops electricity sector scenarios until 2050 for the South East Europe region. The project focuses on 9 countries in South East Europe: Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Greece, Kosovo*, FYRO Macedonia, Montenegro, Romania and Serbia. The implications of different investment strategies in the electricity sector are assessed for affordability, energy security, sustainability and security of supply. In addition to analytical work, the project focuses on trainings, capacity building and enhancing dialogue and cooperation within the SEE region.

  • The main conclusions of the project are the following:
  • The high penetration of renewables in all scenarios suggests that energy policy, both at the national and regional level, should focus on enabling RES integration
  • National energy policy will have less influence on the future generation mix – it will be driven by market forces
  • EU and regional level policies should be incorporated in national energy planning
  • Stranded costs should be carefully considered in fossil generation and gas network investment decisions
  • Household electricity expenditure increase significantly in some countries, it may require new policy approach
  • Regional cooperation helps to handle SoS issues and reduce costs of decarbonisation
