The ambitions of Western Balkan countries to export electricity can be very risky and it is anticipated that this region will have surplus of 56% of electricity, while countries with biggest amount of electricity for exporting will be Bosnia and Herzegovina and Serbia.

This was shown in the latest research by “CEE Bankwatch” which was done by University of Groningen and consulting company “Advisor House”.

The report also mentioned that Montenegro has a chance to reverse its position from large importer of electricity in the next 10 years. Montenegro imports up to 50% of electricity.

Duljko Hasić, expert of the Foreign Trade Chamber of BiH, said that Bosnia and Herzegovina is big exporter of electricity and that this cannot hurt our country.

Dragan Jerinić, president of the Association of producers of electricity from renewable energy, said that it is necessary to separate the sources from which it is planned to get energy.
