Globalization, post industrialization and overproduction, which are primarily based on the desire for profit, have led to environmental pollution. The biggest problems are gases such as carbon dioxide and methane, the gases which are causing the greenhouse effect. It is necessary to determine the percentage of certain gases in the total amount as well as their individual "contributions" to the total pollution. The following includes measures for their reduction or elimination. As a contractor of numerous international agreements and conventions related to environment protection and renewable sources (Treaty establishing the Energy Community of Southeast Europe, the Framework Convention on Climate Change, Kyoto Protocol, the Espoo Convention, etc) B&H is committed to pass a series of state laws related to energy, renewable sources and environmental protection. B&H does not have a renewable sources development and environment protection strategy well as a no laws related to energy efficiency. The reason lies in the lack of adequate regulation, non-responsibility in the implementation of international commitments and obligations which assumes a political dimension also and lack of coordination between state and lower government levels. Also, personnel (in) competence, financial constraints in transposing the developed technologies as well as insufficient public sensitized to issues of environmental protection and development of renewable sources represent significant obstacles for development. The following text will give an overview of the legislation in B&H, the international obligations and commitments, implementation of projects related to environmental protection and renewable sources as the limitations mentioned above.
