Growing economies, like Kosovo, depend on a continuous, affordable source of energy for economic growth, to increase employment opportunities and job creation, in particular for underserved segments of society, such as women, young adults, rural populations, and minority groups.

Over the past decade, the Kosovo government has attempted to expand Kosovo’s generation capacity and has committed to increasing domestic generation capacity from renewable energy sources in accordance with obligations under the Energy Community Treaty.

USAID launched the five-year REPOWER - KOSOVO project to support the Kosovo government’s continued efforts to modernize the country’s electricity sector and open the door to new clean energy projects to improve Kosovo’s ability to provide a cleaner, more consistent, more reliable, and affordable energy supply.

The $12 million project is working to deliver innovative technical assistance and capacity building solutions by applying tested approaches and leveraging existing networks. This activity will catalyze sector reform and build the capacity of local institutions to enable more inclusive and sustained economic development.
