Bosnia and Herzegovina could be the biggest and most profitable exporter of electricity in Southeastern Europe, but did not utilize their potential in a variety of factors, including political issues.

The energy sector could generate more income for the country, attract foreign investments, and encourage industrial development and more.

Bosnia gets 46 percent of its energy from hydropower potential means of renewable sources, and EU experts wonder why there is no strategy for BiH in the field of energy.

In their view, the main problems are caused by political disputes, which are reflected in the control of non-functioning Energy distribution B&H. Although the state company is profitable, the profit is not reinvested. The nonexistence a national energy strategy disqualifies B&H to participate in the creation of regional energy markets, and in the absence of state law, or at least coordinated approach when it comes to the supply of gas.

In addition, three EPs enjoy a monopoly in “their” geographical areas, which means that they are no competition, and customers cannot choose their supplier.

The Delegation of the EU raised attention to discrepancies in the regulation of gas supply sector. Apart from the absence of state law on gas, the problem is the existence of different regulators, and above all – the details of import contracts are not public!
