The first edition of the Trebinje Energy Summit (SET 2020) is set to take place on March 5-6, 2020. The summit will be dedicated to the topic of energy future and energy sector potentials of the Western Balkans and Republika Srpska, one of the two political entities making up Bosnia and Herzegovina.

The event will feature experts, investors, decision-makers, representatives from the NGO sector and international institutions to discuss the region’s geopolitical energy outlook, renewable energy sources, smart energy, and energy efficiency.

Organized by SET Trebinje in cooperation with the City of Trebinje in the Republika Srpska and the state-owned power company Elektroprivreda Republike Srpske (ERS), the summit will provide an opportunity for investors and other stakeholders to get first-hand information about ongoing projects in Bosnia and Herzegovina, new regulatory frameworks, as well meeting with local decision-makers.

The summit is expected to be held every year thereafter.

In an interview Aleksandar Branković, SET’s managing director, said that the Trebinje Energy Summit – SET 2019 is envisioned as a two-day expert conference on latest achievements and projects in the field of energy and energy efficiency in Republika Srpska and the region.

The purpose of the summit, according Branković, is to present good practices, attract foreign investment, and showcase the capacities of ERS and the region in terms of expertise and natural resources.

“At a plenary session, energy ministers from the region, whose attendance has been announced, will discuss the geopolitical energy outlook, and we also expect confirmation of attendance from highest officials of countries in the region,” said Branković.

The overriding goal of organizing the Trebinje Energy Summit (SET) is to make SET a leading energy conference specifically focused on the Western Balkans and Republika Srpska.

As of late, there has been growing discontent with Balkan governments over pollution. Many demonstrations have taken place in the last few years in Kosovo, Macedonia and Bosnia, to name a few.

The protests have likely been fuelled by an increase in the accessibility of information. On renewables, there have been some dips into the market but little planned effort to establish renewable energy as a serious part of the region’s energy sector.

Will the Trebinje Energy Summit help change that?
