Mostly burning fossil fuels, inefficiently

Status and prospects of energy transition in the Western Balkans
For free

Contracting parties of the Energy Community from the Western Balkans rely mostly on coal and oil for their primary energy supply. Renewables also take part in the energy mix primarily through traditional use of biomass in inefficient domestic devices followed by large hydro. Modern sources of renewable energy are at an early stage of development.
Energy and carbon intensity of the region is comparatively high both to the EU and the World
average values. This points to significant space for the improvement in the efficiency of the energy use and production. Import dependency of the region is below the EU average. Currently the region depends on import of the natural gas form Russia.
