State of compliance

While annual statistics have been improving in terms of timeliness and quality, Kosovo’s* compliance with the acquis on monthly statistics remains at a critical level.

  • Regulation (EC) 1099/2008 on Energy Statistics

    Regulation (EC) 1099/2008 on Energy Statistics

    Kosovo* produces quarterly and annual energy balances. Energy consumption surveys were conducted for the industry, households, agriculture, services and transport sectors in 2014.

    Since 2015, the annual questionnaires have been submitted to and published by EUROSTAT and IEA.

    The breakdown of energy consumption in households in line with Regulation (EU) 431/2014, amending Regulation (EC) 1099/2008, is compiled by KAS and transmitted to EUROSTAT, but the quality of reported data is questionable.

    In general, annual energy statistics are collected as required by the acquis.

    The frequency of statistics collection is yearly and quarterly. An EU-financed project provided technical assistance to KAS for monthly statistics, but the new reporting system is not in operation yet. No monthly data are compiled or disseminated yet.

    As regards the monthly oils statistics, the General Policy Guideline on Implementation of Certain Deadlines of Council Directive 2009/119/EC in the Energy Community has still not been implemented by KAS.

    Kosovo* does not comply with Regulation (EC) 1099/2008 as regards monthly statistics.

    Quality report in accordance with Article 5 of the Regulation is not submitted to EUROSTAT as required.

  • Regulation (EU) 2016/1952

    Regulation (EU) 2016/1952 on European statistics on natural gas and electricity prices

    The data for industrial and household consumers were compiled and aggregated in the format and tables defined by EUROSTAT. Electricity prices are reported by the distribution system operator and the public supplier of electricity.

    Electricity prices per consumption band and breakdown by taxation levels are submitted to and subsequently published by EUROSTAT. Electricity price components for households and industrial end-users are reported in the prescribed format, in accordance with the acquis. Gas prices are not relevant for Kosovo*.

    The established compilation procedure enables regular price data reporting in compliance with the acquis.
