The Skopje-based company V&E Dooel was founded in 1997 as a manufacturer of children’s garments, initially under specific supply contracts with a Belgian company. When the Belgian partner stopped its operation 15 years ago, V&E overcame the subsequent challenges by transforming its production to women’s apparel for a German company. Even though a niche product, the relationship with the new partner has grown from occupying 20% of the company’s capacity at the onset to the current 100% over the past few years. I.e. 100% of the company’s production is for export.

V&E invested in new solar PV system installed on the roof of the production hall. The new system reduces the company’s primary energy consumption by 190 MWh and CO2 emission by 83 tCO2/year.

The company received free technical assistance to optimize its investment project and 15% grant cash-back after the successful project verification, funded by the European Union. 

With the investment, the company now meets a wide variety of standards including:

    • Directive 2009/28/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council of 23 April 2009 on the promotion of the use of energy from renewable sources;
    • Directive 2011/65/EU (RoHS) to limit the use of certain hazardous substances in electrical and electronic equipment.
    • Directive 2014/35/EU on the Harmonization of the Laws of Member States relating to Electrical Equipment Designed for Use within Certain Voltage Limits;
    • Directive 2014/30/EU on the harmonization of the laws of the Member States relating to electromagnetic compatibility (recast).
