Albania aims to boost renewable energy capacity by 10 times and become a regional champion in RE production

Albania’s transmission system operator OST expects wind and solar power plants connected to its network to reach a combined 220.4 MW next year or almost ten times more than the current capacity.

The TSO noted that they might increase the renewables capacity for solar PV power plants to 465.4 MW by 2028 and to 915.4 MW by 2033.

Albania currently has a number of solar power projects in the pipeline, equating to a combined 570 MW when completed.

The projects are currently in the licensing stage which is the remit of the Energy Regulatory Authority, the Ministry of Infrastructure and Energy, and the National Environmental Agency.

The projects include:

– SVP Blue 1 and SVP Blue 2, 100 MW combined
– Vau i Dejes 5.1 MW and 12.9 MW
– Karavastar Solar 140 MW
– Info-Telecom 50 MW
– Agar- Solar 150 MW
– Spitalle Solar Park 100 MW
