Kosovo leaves Serbia`s energy regulatory system, joins that of Albania

The Kosovo energy transmission system operator, KOSTT, said in a statement to the media that after a period of intensive work and efficient cooperation it has reached an agreement with Albania’s system operator to establish joint regulatory energy system blocs, a move which KOSTT said was historic.

KOSTT said that the European Network of Transmission System Operators (ENTSO) is aware of the agreement signed with Albania while its CEO Ilir Shala said the agreement with Albania enables Kosovo to leave Serbia's regulatory zone and hailed it as a historic achievement.

The agreement is expected to enter into force in April of next year.
