, SEE Energy News

Total electricity generation in 2014 amounted to 15,030 GWh which is 7.8 % less in comparison to the previous year which was very favourable in hydrological terms. Hydro power plants produced 5,821 GWh, that is, 18.3 % less than in 2013. In hydrological terms, however, the past 2014 was conducive to achieving higher production. Generation by thermal power plants amounted to 8,921 GWh which is 0.2 % less in comparison to the previous year. Generation by small hydro, solar and wind power plants amounted to 264.1 GWh, while industrial power plants produced 24.6 GWh.

Total electricity consumption in BIH amounted to 12,210 GWh, which is 349 GWh or 2.8 % less compared to the previous year. Consumption of customers connected to the transmission and distribution networks decreased by 8.1 % and 0.9 % respectively. With this, as the consequence of decreased consumption by industrial customers, the trend of decreasing electricity consumption, which started in 2013, continued.

The maximum load of the power system in 2014 was recorded on 31 December 2014 at 18:00 hrs amounting to 2,207 MW. With this the historic maximum of 2,173 MW, recorded on the same day and at the same hour in 2010, was exceeded.

Total electricity in the transmission network amounted to 17,681.5 GWh, which is significantly less than 18,936.8 GWh reached in 2013. Consequently, transmission losses decreased by 11.3 % compared to the previous year amounting to 304 GWh, that is, 1.7 % in relation to the total energy in the transmission network. The trend of reducing distribution losses had continued and they amounted to 1,018 GWh or 10.74 % in relation to gross distribution consumption, which was at the lowest level in the history of the BIH power sector.

A total of 3,716 GWh was exported, which is 28 % or 1,446 GWh less than in the previous year and mostly a direct consequence of reduced electricity consumption. Electricity export amounted to 953 GWh, that is, 31 % or 429 GWh less than in 2013. Registered electricity transit through the BIH transmission network amounted to 1,448 GWh, which is a 26% increase in comparison to 2013. , transmits
