The Energy Community Treaty brings together nine Contracting Parties from Eastern and South East Europe, who are obliged to comply with energy-related parts of the environmental acquis, including the rules on environmental impact assessment. The Energy Community Secretariat recently assessed alleged non-compliance with these provisions in the case of a new coal-fired power plant project and initiated a dispute settlement procedure against Bosnia and Herzegovina, the Contracting Party concerned. The present article summarizes the findings of this process.
