VPBC-RES – The Virtual Balkan Power Center for Advance of Renewable Energy Sources in Western Balkans: INCO-CT-2004-509205

Περιγραφή
The activity of the project focuses on the Renewable Energy Sources (RES) in the region of Western Balkan. The countries in the Western Balkan region have great, but insufficiently exploited RES potential. The efficient use of RES could significantly contribute to security of supply within the region and in the wider neighborhood. Special care is devoted to innovative and viable solutions for electricity supply of underdeveloped areas and areas isolated due to war damage.
The VBPC-RES project has the following main objectives:
•    Transfer of know-how in RES technologies and its implementation for isolated regions
•    Identification of main economic and legislative factors influencing investment decisions in RES, including barriers and local specifics, and identification of options for improvement of RES penetration
Building of awareness and education on technologies, means and benefits of renewable energy sources.
