After almost two months since it was established, the Albanian Power Exchange (ALPEX) has been licensed by the Regulatory Body (ERE) for a five year period.
The decision taken by ERE also states the way the power exchange will operate.
"ALPEX will be in charge of creating, managing and administering the electricity market through the market platform," the decision states.
But what does this mean for the energy sector and for consumers?
Starting from January next year, Kosovo's electricity will also be traded in the exchange and this will also mark the unification with the Albanian market.
