Macedonia could cover domestic electricity demand through RES – Macedonia, 3 June 2016

The conclusion of “Long Term Energy Development in Macedonia” conference, which was held on 3 June in Skopje, is that the country has the potential to cover its electricity demand through renewable energy (RES), but it is necessary to establish a long-term energy strategy, secure the financial resources and perform the liberalization of energy market.
According to Konstantin Dimitrov from the Macedonian Center for Energy Efficiency (MACEF), through substitution of electricity produced from fossil fuels with electricity produced by renewable sources, Macedonia will get rid of electricity imports, reduce oil and gas imports and significantly reduce environmental pollution, thus becoming more energy independent. He stressed that currently between 13 and 14 % of electricity produced in Macedonia comes from RES, while some 35 % of its electricity needs is imported, adding that electricity demand could be decreased by implementing energy efficiency measures.
