It was noted that Bosnia and Herzegovina in some areas has made ​​progress, especially when it comes to obligations related to the establishment of the state support system, but also needs to establish a number of obligations when it comes to the legislation in the field of energy efficiency.

The greatest attention is devoted to the issues related to the gas sector and regulations on the quality of liquid fuels.

When it comes to the gas sector, there has been some progress in RS and in FB&H, but in front of the institutions of Bosnia and Herzegovina have remained a number of issues that need to be addressed in order to implement EU legislation in this area and to set up a free market gas.
