  • Institutions & Energy Policy

    North Macedonia is a small republic resulting from the break-up of former Yugoslavia, independent since 1991. It changed its name in 2019 from FYROM (Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia), ending a decades-long dispute with Greece. North Macedonia aspires to join the European Union (EU) and, accordingly, is in the process of harmonising and privatising its energy sector.

  • Energy Supply


    All the gas is imported from Russia (255 mcm in 2018 and 297 mcm in 2019) through the international corridor 8 through Ukraine, Moldova, Romania, and Bulgaria at Zidilovo (capacity of 655 mcm/year). The Klecovce­-Negotino gas pipeline was completed in 2016.

  • Energy Prices


    Maximum product prices are set by the ERC and are updated every two weeks. They have been following global trends, falling between 2012 and 2016 (-7%/year for gasoline and -10%/year for diesel) and recovering since then (+4%/year and +8%/year, respectively). In March 2020, they stood at around MKD55.5/l (around €91c/l) for gasoline and MKD48.5/l (around €79c/l) for diesel.

  • Energy Consumption

    In 2018, the country's energy consumption per capita was 1.2 toe, which is 57% below the European average, including 3 000 kWh of electricity (45% below the EU average).

  • Issues & Prospects

    According to the Strategy for Energy Development of the Republic of North Macedonia until 2040 (2018), primary energy consumption will grow at an average annual rate of 3.2% between 2017 and 2040 to 5.4 Mtoe, while final energy consumption will increase by 2.7%/year to 3.3 Mtoe.
