Pippa Gallop, Bankwatch: We Need to Stop Building New Fossil Fuel Infrastructure
6 August 2018, Energetika.net
While the major EU states have already set out a clear strategy for the swiftest possible transition to renewable energy sources and found many business opportunities along the way, the countries of South East Europe (SEE), where renewable power plant projects remain rare, are mainly still dawdling, or worse, actually planning to construct new thermal power plants (TPPs). Bosnia and Herzegovina (BiH), for example, wants to build as many as five. Nevertheless, things are starting to look up in this region as well, said Pippa Gallop, Research Co-ordinator at the CEE Bankwatch Network, which monitors publicly financed projects and promotes environmentally friendly alternatives.
