SLED project study

March 2016 | Print | Book

The objective of the project “Support for Low-Emission Development in South Eastern Europe (SLED)” is to help policy makers in Albania, the former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia, Montenegro and Serbia to set realistic but ambitious decarbonisation pathways for their electricity sectors up to 2030.

This study assesses the effect of decarbonisation scenarios on the Macedonian electricity system. The scenarios and assumptions were agreed with the main stakeholders in the former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia (relevant ministries, the regulator and electricity experts), and the modelling inputs were coordinated with a team from the Macedonian Academy of Sciences and Arts involved in MARKAL modelling.

The SLED project is implemented by the REC’s Climate Change and Clean Energy Topic Area and funded by the Austrian Development Cooperation through the Austrian Development Agency (ADA).
