Guides for Investors

The United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), acting as an implementing agency of the Global Environment Facility (GEF) is implementing the GEF funded project “Reducing Barriers to Accelerate the Development of Biomass Markets in Serbia” in close partnership with the Ministry of Mining and Energy and the Ministry of Agriculture and Environmental Protection of the Republic of Serbia.

The objective of the Biomass Project is to increase the share of energy from renewable sources in the energy mix of Serbia, namely the share of biomass in power generation. One of project activities is focused on enhancing the capacity of all relevant stakeholders to develop, finance, construct and operate bankable biomass renewable energy projects. To that end an update and revision of six existing, yet outdated guides for investors in renewable energy facilities has been performed, aligning all guides with existing legislation that regulates this matter.

All guides are bilingual and, except for one, were delivered in two versions. Six detailed guides describe in details the comprehensive procedure for constructing the energy facilities and performing economic activity of energy generation from renewable sources. Detailed guides are intended primarily to investors and project developers, but also to officials in different competent institutions since the legal procedure is cross-sectoral. In five less detailed guides the comprehensive matter is described in simpler and illustrative manner with an idea to get this topic closer to the wide range of stakeholders.

The objective of the guides is to encourage and assist the investors interested in the Serbian renewable energy sector, but also to identify through thorough analysis weakness and inconsistencies of the procedure and to encourage competent institutions to perform legal and institutional improvements. We sincerely hope that the guides will trigger constructive dialog between the numerous stakeholders and thus contribute to their better awareness and mutual understanding, which ultimately should result in favorable environment for investments in renewable energy.

Guide for the Local Self-governments on Including Energy Efficiency Aspects in Criteria in Public Procurement Process

A large share of public procurements in Serbia is implemented by the local self-governments. Thanks to their purchasing power to drive the market towards the supply of energy efficient products and services, local authorities, within their competences, can significantly influence energy efficiency in public buildings and services, and therefore the achievement of the objectives of the National Energy Efficiency Action Plan. UNDP and the Standing Conference of Towns and Municipalities of Serbia (SCTM), in cooperation with the Ministry of Energy, Development and Environmental Protection prepared “The Guide for the Local Self-governments on Including Energy Efficiency Aspects in Criteria in Public Procurement Process”, in accordance with Directive 2006/32/EC on energy end-use efficiency and energy services. The Guide is a result of the joint UNDP-SCTM project “Energy Efficiency Awareness Rising for Decision Makers at Local Level in Serbia”. Printing of the Guide was supported by the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation (SDC).
