Serbia and the United States will cooperate on the energy transition, energy security and independence, and in diversification in the gas sector, following talks held in Prague by Serbian Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Mining and Energy Zorana Mihajlović and US Deputy Secretary of Energy David Turk .

Taking part in a round table on energy security and diversification in Europe, Mihajlović and Turk also exchanged views on building energy infrastructure, regional connectivity, exchanging experience and technologies, working together to combat climate change, meeting the Paris Agreement goals, transitioning to clean energy and improving energy efficiency.

The Deputy Prime Minister explained that by adopting a new legislative framework, Serbia has created the basis for starting the energy transition and changing the structure of our energy mix.

“The goal is to reduce the production of energy from dirty fuels and increase the percentage of renewable energy sources. Our new investment plan includes the construction of new capacities”, explained Zorana Mihajlović, adding that in addition to reversible hydropower plants Djerdap 3 and Bistrica, we want new solar and wind farms because the goal is to provide enough electricity from our own sources.
