Bosnia and Herzegovina announced plans to ban electricity exports due to high internal demand

Bosnia and Herzegovina announced plans to ban exports of electricity due to high consumption in the country. Increased prices of gas, firewood and pellets has forced many citizens of Bosnia and Herzegovina to turn to electricity as the main source of energy in the colder months, which puts additional pressure on power plants.

Bosnia and Herzegovina exports about 25% of its electricity and two thirds of exports go to neighboring countries-Slovenia, Croatia and Serbia. Those countries would certainly be affected by the decision to ban the export of electricity from Bosnia and Herzegovina.

Households are more often heated with electricity, but such behavior can threaten the entire system of electric energy supply and lead to a collapse.

Amed Ergić, vice president of the Foreign Trade Chamber of Bosnia and Herzegovina.

The price of electricity in BiH is subsidized by the state and is at the level of one tenth of the market price, while gas prices have increased by 100 percent compared to last winter.
