Renewable energy sources in Albania are promoted through a feed-in tariff applied currently only to small hydro power plants up to 15 MW and based on power purchase agreements signed for 15 years. The public energy supplier is obliged to pay a regulated tariff for the electricity generated from renewable energy sources.

The grid operator is obliged to connect to the system any renewable energy generating plant meeting the conditions for connection. Renewable energy is given priority with regard to grid connection.
