North Macedonia empowers renewable energy sector: 545 licenses granted for power plants in 18 months

The Regulatory Commission for Energy and Water Services (RKEVU) has issued licenses to 545 power plants for the production of electricity from renewable sources with a total installed capacity of almost 270 megawatts in North Macedonia. This licensing period lasted for 18 months, from January 2022 to June 2023.

According to the Regulatory Authority, the installed capacity can meet the needs of over 104,000 households with average electricity consumption from 13 cities in the country: Ohrid, Tetovo, Kratovo, Krushevo, Kriva Palanka, Sveti Nikole, Resen, Dojran, Debar, Vinica, Struga, Negotino, and Gevgelija.

In six months, RKE issued licenses to 278 power stations, which is a greater number than the power stations that acquired licenses in 2022. The interest among the companies is of increasing intensity, which can be seen from the figures that we publish, and that is why the import of electricity has decreased by 13 percent this year, as opposed to the traditional 30 percent, said Marko Bislimoski, president of the Energy and Water Regulatory Commission.
