The Competition Commission also considered the concentration obtained through the acquisition of control of the undertakings Neoen Renewables Croatia d.o.o. and Fazan Sol d.o.o. from the company STATKRAFT OIE d.o.o.

The concentration will not create overlaps or upstream or downstream relations between the activities of the parties at the national level and for these reasons, the intended transaction will not bring change and will not have an impact on the Albanian market.

For these reasons, the Competition Commission by Decision no. 1073, dated 19.04.2024, decided to authorize the concentration obtained through the acquisition of control of the companies Neoen Renewables Croatia d.o.o. and Fazan Sol d.o.o. from the company STATKRAFT OIE d.o.o.
