Rocking the Boat: What is Keeping the Energy Community’s Coal Sector Afloat?

The Energy Community Secretariat published a study on analyzing and quantifying direct and hidden subsidies to support the coal sector in Bosnia and Herzegovina, Kosovo*, Montenegro, North Macedonia, Serbia and Ukraine during the period 2015-2017. Coal has become an obstacle on the Energy Community Contracting Parties’ paths towards EU accession and meeting their commitments under the Paris Agreement on Climate Change. This study aims to trigger a wide-reaching and all-encompassing stakeholder discussion based on reliable data in order to start changing mind-sets and trigger a change in policy-making.
