"By adopting a new legislative framework, especially the Law on the Use of RES, Serbia has clearly decided to go towards decarbonisation and started the process of energy transition, and on that path we want to cooperate as much as possible with Israel, a country that already has notable results in RES development," said Deputy Prime Minister.
