RES Foundation’s programme director, Aleksandar Macura, will give his contribution to seventh edition of Macedonian Energy Forum that will take place on June 10-11 in Skopje. This year’s edition, The New Energy Landscape: Recovered, Repowered, Repurposed, is happening in a more stable energy environment. Most actors recovered from the energy crisis or built greater resilience toward energy volatility and energy challenges.

However, there is still much open discussion about the repowering trajectory and its pace. How can states, the private sector, and citizens repower and repurpose energy capacities for an era of constant geopolitical challenges? At the same time, technological innovation still needs to be sufficiently deployed.

Many countries, including Western Balkan ones, embark on ambitious plans to replace coal capacities with renewable energy sources and repurpose their assets and human capital for the new RES-powered world. But what has to occur for timely, just, and innovative energy repowering and repurposing?

At the point of the seventh edition of MEF, the energy discussions have evolved and matured to make us the prime and most relevant platform to share and discuss ideas for energy repowering across the public, private, civil society and academic sectors in order to address the above-stated questions and provide direction and fresh views on how we all need to build a renewable energy landscape while taking care of energy security.

Macura will contribute on the panel Berlin Process Insights Session “Decoding a Decade: The Berlin Process and its Impact on Energy Transition in the Western Balkans” with some of the most eminent guests of the Forum.
