The Balkan Transformation and the Underlying Energy Factor

In 2006, Kosovo announced the initiation of an international competition regarding the privatization of the energy sector of the province. Privatization is to include the creation of a new 2,100-megawatt power station, the renovation of an older facility, and the manufacture of a lignite production station to supply these power facilities. The total estimated cost is some 3 billion euros, a substantial amount that will be compensated by future high energy demands in the province and an ability to export electricity to Albania, Montenegro, and possibly Bosnia-Herzegovina
Regardless of the legality of such a move, since the province is still under Serbian administration, competitors for the energy investment in Kosovo come from countries that enjoy more or less cordial relations with the United States
