Energy Community Membership

The EnC currently includes eight CS: Albania, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Kosovo, the former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia, Moldova, Montenegro, Serbia, and Ukraine. Bulgaria and Romania were briefly CS before joining the EU in 2007. Croatia was a founding
member of the EnC and adopted the EU energy acquis under its supervision, before eventually joining the EU in 2013. As EU Member States, these countries continue to be part of the broader EnC but are no longer CS (see Figure 1). The EU is represented primarily by the European Commission in its relations with the CS. In addition, 19 EU Member States have chosen to be participants in EnC proceedings. These Member States can send formal delegations to EnC meetings but without any voting rights. Non-EU states can also participate as Observers. This status currently applies to Georgia, Armenia, Norway, and Turkey.
