District heating in Kosovo

District heating | September 2015 - June 2016

The World Bank has financed a development project, aimed at assisting the authorities in Kosovo in developing their energy sector. As a part of this project, and in cooperation with the German consultant Fichtner, Ea Energy Analyses is looking at the price structure in the Kosovar district heating sector.

The district heating sector in Kosovo is struggling with a number of problems, such as high prices, non-payments and deteriorating plant economies. Therefore, the project looks at the regulations governing the district heating sector, including the foundation for billing and the regulation of prices.

Ea Energy Analyses has developed a price model for district heating and given a number of recommendations concerning actions that can be taken to ensure a smoother transition towards meter based billing in the Kosovar district heating sector.
