  • Exclude small hydropower plants from the category of renewable energy sources
  • Exclude small hydropower plants from the subsidy scheme and State aid
  • Revise renewable energy targets and develop funding programmes to help green energy transition suited to the needs and capabilities of BiH society and its environment
