Today the energy, as ever before, remains one of the most pressing challenges for both the EU and candidate countries. In the last, EC has adopted on 25th July and enter into force on 14th August 2015 the new electricity market rules through a series of EU laws (generally known as 'network codes and guidelines' in this case Regulation establishing a Guideline on Capacity Allocation and Congestion Management - CACM) which will bring the goal of a well-integrated EU internal energy market a step closer.
In legal terms, Albania on 30th April 2015 adopted the new Law no. 43 on Electricity Sector that aim a fully aligned with Directive 2009/72/EC dated 13 July 2009 "On common rules for the internal market in electricity”. Notwithstanding, the new law on the electricity sector approved by Albanian Parliament, constitutes a decisive step forward, it is only the first on the long path of the energy reforms in Albania. This needs to go hand-in-hand with the design of a new market structure. Among other, this design must allow for spot-trading (i.e. day-ahead and intra-day markets) that open the door to the fully deregulation of prices and based the sector in market structures.
The objective of the Albanian Centre for Energy Regulation and Conservation - ACERC is to help of policymaking process on a building a market model liberalized and effectively integrated based in an efficient use of energy resources. An ambition that need to be assist the modelling by a continuous shared consultation process to enable national policy makers and influence the stimulate toward the scenarios development process according to EU and regional policy on energy sector and climate strategy developments.
A power market analysis that was to be carried out in the framework of overall European Energy Union Strategy. A modelling exercise that require policy options related with the improve of the production mix of electricity generation, supply side management, increasing shares of renewables as well as assessed investment support schemes. A simulates model working within around 40 European energy markets, that have to takes into account as well future infrastructure in generation and interconnection in European and global scale. Then the only sure strategy remain that of long commitments in the process of setting up ambitious 2020 and 2030 goal policy.
