ACERC is a think tank centre with focus in Albania energy market and its integration on 8th Regional Area & EU IEM. The ACERC mission aim to provide a qualified contribution to the promotion of the liberalization and the effective integration as well as the efficient use of energy resources.

ACERC main activities profiles briefly consists in the release reports, articles and periodicals. In cooperation also with collaborates the offering of the activities that support capacity building of market actors, such as national and regional seminars, trainings and conferences. Initiatives completed by advocating in the energy sector promoting a forum called in Albanian School of Regulation.

Risk – Related Regulatory Investment Incentives for Projects of Energy Community Interest, Recommendation Paper April 2015

AEL Updates May 2015 Posted on Sat, July 25, 2015 08:56:26

It is widely recognized that the general
“financial climate” for energy networks infrastructure projects, i.e. their financial
viability, is significantly influenced by the applicable regulatory framework.
Being subject of price regulation, electricity and natural gas transmission
companies reimburse their capital and operational expenditures based on pricing
mechanisms (price controls) developed by the NRA.

Normally, well-designed price controls should
ensure recovery of all prudently incurred costs, including investment projects
costs, taking into consideration at least the average systematic risk of the
TSO’s investment portfolio via the regulator’s estimate of the cost of capital
(more precisely, equity risk premium, usually using firm’s beta23), but also
other risks depending on the features of the applied model of price regulation.

ECRB recognizes that the PECI promoters may be
exposed to additional non-controllable risks that were not observed or
accounted for by the NRA while setting the price controls, and that such risks
may adversely influence both the project promoter’s decision to invest and the
lenders perception of the bankability of the project.

RENEWABLE ENERGY Market Analysis
and Forecasts to 2020

International Energy Agency (IEA)

Medium-Term Market Report EXECUTIVE SUMMARY 2014

In 2013, new renewable power capacity expanded at its fastest pace to date. Globally, renewable
generation was estimated on par with that from natural gas.

Over the medium term, renewables face a transition period. Despite strong anticipated generation
growth, new generation, capacity additions and investment in renewable power are all expected
to level off through 2020. Biofuels for transport and renewable energy use for heating and cooling
face slower growth and persistent policy challenges.

Even with growing competitiveness, policies remain vital to stimulating investment in capitalintensive
renewables. Scaling up deployment to higher levels would require stable, long-term policy
frameworks and market design that prices the value of renewables to energy systems and increases
power system flexibility to ensure system adequacy with greater variable renewables.
