The Energy Law aims to adapt the conditions of the energy sector to the new requirements of the European Union (EU) and prepare for participation in the regional electricity market in South-East Europe and in the Euro-Atlantic integration. The Energy Law states that the Government of Montenegro is responsible for defining and implementing a national energy policy, a national energy strategy and a policy to achieve demand and supply balance. It will ensure the implementation of measures to:
- protect the environment;
- promote and facilitate investment in the energy sector;
- develop an environment of competition and private sector participation in the energy sector; and
- set policies and strategies for the construction/reconstruction of power facilities.
