Of the total installed capacity to produce energy in Bosnia in 1990 (4,000 MW), war had destroyed 56 percent. Sixty percent of the transmission grid had also been destroyed.[14]

However, by 2002 Bosnia's energy sector had surpassed its pre-war capacity as a result of a huge donor mobilisation.[15] The destruction of transformer stations in Croatia and in the Herzegovina during the war continued to hinder both regional energy trade and trade with the EU. This was also overcome by 2004.
