In Part 1 of this special report, Komila Nabiyeva demonstrated how investment conditions in South East and Eastern Europe, South Caucasus and Central Asia make it almost impossible to justify development of renewables infrastructure on any great scale. That being the case, she calls on the EU to play a greater role. Their initiatives are already making a difference. This is encouraging because it shows that with more EU engagement, a more meaningful energy transition is possible. As well as getting the region on the road to Paris targets, that would also help solve their pressing energy security and health issues, boost economic growth and contribute to democratisation and peace building.
