Natural gas as an option for sustainable energy transition in Kosovo

The Institute for Development Policy (INDEP) publishes the next paper within the program for sustainable development ‘Natural gas as an option for sustainable energy transition in Kosovo’. The paper looks at the possibilities of how gas can be used as a significantly lower carbon dioxide emission capacity to facilitate the transition instead of the traditional full-time base load role may be its most significant contribution to the energy transition. The potential development of the natural gas sector in Kosovo in line with the developments of the regional gas infrastructure, is seen as a great opportunity to support this transition. Natural gas is also a potential complement / substitute for renewable energy because it can compensate for the interruption of energy produced by renewable sources – when there is no wind or sunlight.
