Hydropower in Albania

Statkraft in Albania has implemented and is operating the Devoll Hydropower Project, the largest private hydropower project in Albania in the last 30 years.

Statkraft is open and is continuing to investigate for potential opportunities to expand its investments in hydropower and solar power in Albania and in the South East Europe.

Hydropower has many advantages, including:

  • Low emissions
  • High efficiency
  • Energy ratio payback
  • Long lifetime
  • High flexibility

This flexibility is particularly important in combination with intermittent technologies, such as wind power. Development and operation of hydropower plants facilitate multiple uses of watercourses and regulation plants. Examples of such use include irrigation, water supply, transport and recreation.

In addition, flood control using reservoirs is an important safety measure in many areas.
