North Macedonia: Despite increasing imports no increase for electricity price, SEE Energy News
Due to the stopping of the operation of the hydropower plants, ESM compensated the lack of the required amount of electricity via imports. In November, 3 million euros were spent on imports of 60,000 MWh of electricity.
Power plants operated by state-owned power utility ESM offered the same price for electricity to the universal supplier in the tender as in the previous six months – 38.8 euros/MWh.
In August, the price of electricity increased by 7.4 %, with the explanation that state-owned energy companies have reduced revenues due to the coronavirus crisis, and investments in the network for uninterrupted power supply are necessary.
