Renewables readiness assessment: Albania

The Republic of Albania has one of the highest shares of renewable energy in South East Europe. Hydropower accounts for the largest share of the country's electricity generation, representing around 95% of Albania's installed power capacity. As a result, the country is highly dependent on annual rainfall for electricity generation, leading to notable fluctuations in domestic energy production. This Renewables Readiness Assessment (RRA) highlights key actions for the short and medium-term that could create more conductive conditions for renewable energy development. It aims to support Albania on its path towards integrating a higher, more diversified share of renewable energy in its national energy mix.
