Connection Agreement Kostt


Kosovo`s electricity supplier and ENTSO-E members sign a bilateral agreement. Following the vote of the continental Europe regional group (RGCE) in April, KOSTT Ceo Ilir Shala concluded the connection agreement with the European network of transport network managers – ENTSO-E. The Kosovo TSO said it would act as an independent regulatory zone within the AK bloc with the Republic of Albania under the synchronous zone of continental Europe. Kosova has already fulfilled all the conditions to operate separately from Serbia, which is why, according to the Continental European Regional Group (RGCE), it was decided on 29 September that the agreement should enter into force. In December 2019, Marko Djuric, head of the Serbian office for Kosovo and Metochia, said in a statement that Belgrade had prevented KOSTT`s accession to ENTSO-E for years. Djuric argued that “Serbia is the owner and builder of the power grids in Kosovo and Metohija, for which there is abundant evidence,” adding that the international community should prevent such an agreement. The agreement was criticized by Serbia, which in December accused the two countries of pursuing a “great energy banana” by signing the agreement. The agreement provides for the full commissioning of the 400 kV interconnection with Albania, which was built in 2016, KOSTT said. The vote confirms the signing of a connection contract between ENTSO-E and KOSTT, Kosovo`s transport network manager, which can join the 42 other transport network managers who make up the regional organisation for energy cooperation. In December 2019, KOSTT and the National Energy Regulatory Authority (ADD) signed an agreement establishing a common energy bloc. The agreement provides for the decoupling of Kosovo from Serbian regulations and the launch of an energy reserve exchange programme between the two countries from April 2020.

KOSTT will raise between 4 and 8 million euros in annual revenue from the use of the interconnected network network or capacity allocation and congestion management, as well as 500 to 1 million euros for transit, the press release says.
