|ENERGY DEPENDENCE FOR ALL FUELS|
Energy dependence is calculated as ratio between net import of energy and the total energy consumption.
What is the rate of energy dependence of the Republic of Macedonia?
During the reporting period, variable trend of growth and fall in energy dependence could be noted. Data indicated increase in energy dependence on import in 2016 compared to previous yearThe highest energy dependence during the reporting period was recorded in 2016 or 58,8% of energy consumption in the country was covered by import. The lowest energy dependence of 37.6% was recorded in 2003.

Energy dependence measures the rate of country dependence on import in order to meet its energy demand. The goal of every country’s energy policy is to reduce its dependence on imported energy.
During the analyzed period, variable trend of growth and fall in energy dependence could be noted. The trend of increase in energy dependence on import in order to meet energy demand in the country continued in 2016, too. Data showed increase in energy dependence on import in 2016 compared to previous year , which was the highest energy dependence during the analyzed period. The lowest energy dependence of 37.6% was recorded in 2003.
- Methodology for the indicator calculation
Statistical methodology for calculation:
- Common surveys for coal, oil, natural gas, electricity and heat, renewable energy by Eurostat, ECE/UN and IEA/OECD
- “Energy Statistics Methodology Eurostat F4, 1998″
- Strategy for Renewable Energy Sources Utilization in the Republic of Macedonia by 2020
- National Strategy for Sustainable Development in the Republic of Macedonia 2009 – 2030
- Strategy for Energy Efficiency Promotion in the Republic of Macedonia by 2020
- Strategy for Energy Development in the Republic of Maceodnia by 2030
Law on Energy; Energy Balance of the Republic of Macedonia – annual planning document defining the demands for energy and the possibility for their supply (Article 16 of the Law on Energy).
Reduction of dependence on import through investments in research and generation of new energy sources (with focus on the utilization of solar, geothermal energy and biomass from waste in rural areas) and other energy infrastructures.3 http://www.konkurentnost.mk/StrateskiDokumenti/StrategijazaunapreduvanjenaEERMdo2020godina.pdf
