Germany is the classic case of a large global economy committing energy suicide in order to solve the issue of 'climate change'.
Berlin has shuttered its nuclear plants, and made itself dependent on unreliable 'renewable energy' and Russian gas.
Hint -- the climate always changes. 10,000 years ago the Earth was bathed in a much warmer climate.
Solving 'climate change' is a fool's errand. What is really going on is the enabling of globalist dominance and pain for the working man and woman.
How's that working out for ya?
Now Berlin is hustling to re-open coal-fired electrical plants to meet winter requirements as its citizens literally freeze.
California has rolling black outs. American energy security has also been purposefully destroyed.
Welcome to clown world brought to you by the World Economic Forum and the Chinese Communist Party.
Now, these globalists want to force the Western Balkans to implement the same suicidal polices.
Governments of the Western Balkans, particularly Albania, must expedite reforms, including those in clean energy and renewables, to reap environmental benefits but also improve living standards, declared European Investment Bank (EIB) Vice President Lilyana Pavlova to Exit.al.
Earlier in 2022, the EIB launched a new branch, EIB Global, which focuses on activities outside the European Union, including the Western Balkans, where it is engaged in several initiatives.
As a contracting party of the Energy Community, Albania, which opened EU accession talks in July, is supported in aligning its national legislation with the EU’s, including the implementation of the Energy Performance of Buildings and Energy Efficiency Directives.
“As the EU Climate Bank, EIB is already working across the region on deploying clean energy, particularly wind and solar. In order to be able to use more energy from renewable sources, we will continue to also invest in electricity networks and upgrade and expand storage infrastructure that will help boost energy security.”
“The governments should expedite the reforms needed to improve the capacity to reap the maximum benefits of these investments for citizens and businesses,” Pavlova said.
She added that it is crucial to continue working on increasing the competitiveness of regional economies through the green transition and adherence to EU standards.
This, she stressed, is “vital for creating a better business environment and living standards for people in the region, and for improving employment prospects for highly educated and young people who account for around 40% of emigration from Albania”.
“The country could become self-sufficient in clean energy and even a net exporter. Albania is among the European countries with the highest sunshine hours per year and has the highest potential for solar energy in the Western Balkans region,” she said.
Combined with its significant hydropower capacity, it could become a “green battery for the wider region”.
Albanians should choose wiser than the diabolical fools in Brussels.
