About the GEF Reality Check Series
GEF experts will start producing and distributing regular energy market reports on various countries within the Southeastern European region. The purpose of this initiative is to increase the visibility of fast unfolding developments that currently take place in the regional energy sector and to provide the incentive to the international community to explore potential business opportunities.
This report has been intentionally designed to be concise and hence strictly limited to one-page. Our objective is to highlight key developments that are likely to have a strong impact in the energy setting as well as provide our forward view for the near future. Furthermore, we aspire to generate an ongoing discussion around the evolution of the region into a modern and liquid energy market.
Therefore, we welcome any comments and questions on your behalf via email to
