The discussion at the Energy Summit will be focused on a number of high level issues, such as an outlook at the future energy path for BiH, challenges of implementing the energy efficiency and renewable energy sources strategic framework, as well as more focused and technical discussions on the Investment regime in the Energy sector, Electricity Retail market in BiH, and Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency topics. The Summit will be organized into a number of plenary sessions and more technical workshops.
