{{#badges:CoalSwarm|Navbar-Kosovocoal}}The Sibovc coal mine is located in Obilić, near Pristina in Kosovo. The mine is one of the largest coal mines in Kosovo. The mine is located in Obilić in District of Pristina.[1] The mine has coal reserves amounting to 1 billion tonnes of lignite making it one of the largest single mines in Kosovo.[1]

The production capacity of Kosova A power station and Kosova B power station has been hampered by chronic technical problem, including a lightning strike in July 2002. Kosovo has been importing electricity in order to make up some for its deficit. Despite the imports for much of the 1999-2002 electricity was not guarantied 24 hours a day.[2]
