District heating sector in Kosova consists of four district heating companies/enterprises that cover the municipalities of Prishtina, Gjakova, Mitrovica and Zveçan.
An important development in the district heating sector in Kosova in terms of the completion of legal and regulatory basis for the district heating sector in Kosova is the adoption of the Law No. 03/L-116 on District Heating by the Assembly of the Republic of Kosova on 20 November 2008. The Law on District Heating defines conditions and standards for the carrying out conduct of any heat production, distribution and supply, conditions for operating with  district heating  facilities , market organization and access to distribution network, as well as the rights and obligations of the entities that act under this Law. Also, the Law on Public Enterprises, adopted in June 2008, has brought changes in terms of ownership, corporate governance and oversight.. In fact this Law classifies the district heating companies as local public companies, which subsequently are transferred to the ownership and supervision of respective municipalities. Furthermore, pursuant to this Law, such companies are organized as shareholding companies, with shareholder rights exercised by the Municipal Shareholders Committee, while the company activities are supervised by the Board of Directors, which is elected by the Municipal Shareholders Committee. D.H. “Termokos” J.S.C  and D.H. “Gjakova” J.S.C function as corporations, i.e. as joint stock companies, whereas D.H “Termomit” and D.H “Zveçan” operate as business units of municipal integrated companies of Mitrovica and Zveçan respectively.  DH Termokos and DH Gjakova are still in the process of implementing corporate governance in accordance with internationally recognized practices, as well as achieving objectives for a successful operation on commercial basis. Despite positive developments in this area, these companies are not yet functioning as self-sustainable and profitable businesses. As a result they remain dependent on the Kosova Consolidated Budget subsidies.GenerationHeat generation is performed in central heating plants equipped with boilers witch   mainly use heavy fuel oil (mazut) and a small amount of  light fuel oil (diesel), which fuels are imported with a price following stock market prices plus a premium for covering supplier’s expenses.Distribution
A common trait of all heating district heating systems in Kosova is that their distribution network consists of a primary network up to the delivery (supply) point in the substation and the secondary network from the delivery (supply) point in the substation to the final users. District heating system in Mitrovica consists of two separate distribution networks. Main part of the primary network is connected to the main heat plant, while the other one is connected to the heat plant at the hospital premises. Companies
