Energy transition in Serbia is not just about the energy mix, technology, or emissions. It is a process that must be preceded by a change in society.
Moving from lignite towards cleaner energy is a difficult task and is not comparable to any recently executed reform or transformation by Serbian society. Significantly delaying the decision on energy transition in Serbia is another risky strategy as the resources required for the transition will remain unutilized and could even be lost over time.
Properly targeting the extent of possible solid biomass deployment for power is comparable in complexity to deciding on lignite.
