Institutions & Energy Policy
Bosnia and Herzegovina is a Balkan country that became independent from Yugoslavia in 1992. Since the signing of the Dayton Peace Agreement in 1995, the country has been split in two entities, the Federation of Bosnia and Herzegovina (FBiH) and the Republic of Srpska (RS); in addition, the district of Brčko has a special status.
The power sector consists of three vertically integrated public monopolies (90% public): Elektroprivreda BiH (EP BIH), Elektroprivreda RS (ERS) and Elektroprivreda HZ HB (EP HZ HB). The power companies are synchronised and interconnected but there is no competition among them; they are virtual monopolies within their exclusive service territories (no unbundling of distribution companies).
The 4.2 Mt/year Bosanski Brod refinery, situated in the Republic of Srpska, is the country's only refinery. The refinery has been modernised to produce Euro-5 fuels and MTBE. However, only part of the capacity is operated (1.2 Mt/year). In 2018, oil refining volumes fell by 23% to 675 kt due to an emergency shutdown in October 2018.
Motor fuel prices are following international trends, surging between 2000 and 2012 (+71% for gasoline and doubling for diesel), declining until 2016 (-7%/year for gasoline and -8%/year for diesel) and recovering since then (+7% for gasoline and +9%/year for diesel). They remain significantly lower than the EU average (-22% and -16%, respectively, in 2018).
The country's overall consumption per capita reaches 1.8 toe (37% below the EU average in 2018) with electricity accounting for 3 350 kWh (38% below the EU average).
The country's total consumption increased rapidly between 2015 and 2017 (+5.5%/year) and remained stable in 2018 at 6.4 Mtoe. It increased very rapidly between 1995 and 2011 (+10%/year) and declined until 2015.
Issues & Prospects
According to NOS BIH's plans, electricity consumption is expected to increase by around 1.6%/year between 2020 and 2029. Around 1.4 GW of power projects are expected before 2030, including 750 MW of coal and lignite-fired power plants, and 373 MW of CCGTs and 210 MW of hydropower.
