Building Greener and Safer Future for North Macedonia - Support for Development of Programme for the Implementation of the National Strategy for Energy Development 2040

The project will focus on revising the National Strategy for Energy Development 2040 in line with the redefined economic situation as a result of the global Covid-19 pandemic, and to further develop an Implementation programme which will operationalise the strategy in the initial five-year period. There is specific emphasis on assessing the effects of the strategy as relate to gender equality and social inclusion, related to accessing energy services and technologies.

The strategy aims to align with EU policies and provide the necessary policy platform for government (at national and local level) and regulators to manage the modernization and transformation of the energy sector in line with EU energy trends. This will contribute to increased access, integration and availability of energy services, reduction of local and global pollution and increased participation of the private sector, taking into account the development potential of Northern Macedonia and domestic specifics.

The project will develop a comprehensive communication plan for the Strategy / Green Scenario and a Communication Plan for the five-year implementation program that will convey the country's long-term commitment to energy reform, while building trust between stakeholders and citizens.
