State of compliance
As regards the energy statistics acquis, there still remain several issues of non-compliance, most evident are those related to monthly statistics.
Regulation (EC) 1099/2008
Regulation (EC) 1099/2008 on energy statistics
Bosnia and Herzegovina has compiled the annual data collection comprising all five annual questionnaires since 2014. However, there are several concerns related to compliance with the Regulation, the foremost being timeliness and completeness. In terms of annual statistics, Bosnia and Herzegovina made some progress but has not achieved full compliance with the requirements of the acquis.
Currently, the integration of results from different surveys of energy consumption in households is taking place with the objective to produce coherent information, based on the census data on population, households and dwellings.
Bosnia and Herzegovina has not compiled and submitted the breakdown of the energy consumption of households, as required by the acquis.
BHAS started to compile monthly reports for electricity and coal. Methodologies and questionnaires for monthly energy statistics were compliant with the acquis. The collection of data on gas, oil and petroleum products still remains a problem. The Ministry of Foreign Trade and Economic Relations (MOFTER) has initiated some activities, but the needed progress has not been achieved.
A comprehensive administrative framework is still missing, along with a corresponding IT solution.
Monthly data reporting is not taking place according to the acquis.
The quality report is compiled and transmitted to EUROSTAT.
Regulation (EU) 2016/1952
Regulation 2016/1952/EU on European statistics on natural gas and electricity prices
BHAS regularly reports semi-annual data for electricity and natural gas prices to EUROSTAT. The prices of electricity charged to industrial and household end-users are compiled and aggregated in accordance with Regulation 2016/1952/EU and submitted to EUROSTAT. The prices of natural gas are reported and published by EUROSTAT broken down per consumption band and per taxation level.
Electricity prices are collected and compiled by SERC, whereas gas prices are provided by the biggest retail supplier. As regards the breakdown of components of electricity prices, Bosnia and Herzegovina has been transmitting the required data to EUROSTAT covering disaggregated prices for industrial end-users and for households and thus complied with the acquis.
