Action plans, reports and statements

North Macedonia

Day of Accession
1 July 2006
Status
Contracting Party

As a Contracting Party to the Energy Community Treaty, North Macedonia has the obligation to implement the energy acquis in force. Parallel to the adoption of secondary legislation, the implementation of the acquis gives rise to diverse reporting obligations.

Particularly the implementation of the renewable energy and energy efficiency acquis is based on comprehensive, multi-annual action plans. As a first step, the Parties draft and adopt the action plans that set the steps for achieving the negotiated targets. They are subsequently obliged to report about the progress achieved in the form of regular progress reports. Starting in 2019, North Macedonia will also have a reporting obligation pursuant Annex VIII.B of the Large Combustion Plan Directive 2001/80/EC as amended by Decision 2013/05/MC-EnC.

In the Energy Community context, the work on the  national energy and climate plans (NECPs) is based on Ministerial Council Recommendation 2018/01/MC-EnC.  In line with the time plan, the Contracting Parties agreed to submit the draft NECPs to the Secretariat by the first quarter of 2020.

This page displays the reports and action plans submitted by North Macedonia to the Secretariat so far.

    Security of supply statements

    According to Article 29 of the Treaty, the Contracting Parties are to adopt Security of Supply Statements starting one year after its entry into force (July 2007). The statements are to describe in particular the diversity of supply, technological security, and geographic origin of imported fuels. The Parties have the obligation to update the statements and notify the Secretariat every two years.

  • National energy efficiency action plan

    National Energy Efficiency Action Plans

    The National Energy Efficiency Action Plans (NEEAPs) provide a framework for the development of a national strategy on how best to augment the level of energy efficiency. The NEEAPs, to be submitted to the Secretariat every two years, also provide a platform for the Parties to evaluate the energy savings resulting from the implementation of these strategies. Whilst the first NEEAPs covered the period 2010-2012, the second NEEAPs set the line of action for 2013-2015 pursuant to the Energy Services Directive 2006/32/EC.   

    The Energy Services Directive 2006/32/EC was repealed by the Energy Efficiency Directive 2012/27/EU. Incorporated into the acquis in October 2015, the Energy Efficiency Directive mandates the Parties to report and evaluate a set of measures that contribute to the 2018 national target for final energy savings. The Third NEEAPs should accordingly cover the period 2016-2018 and be submitted to the Secretariat by the end of June 2016 at the latest.

  • National renewable action plan (NREAP)

    National renewable action plan (NREAP)

    Article 4 of Directive 2009/28/EC requires the adoption of a national renewable action plan (NREAP) setting out the Contracting Parties national targets for the share of energy from renewable sources consumed in transport, electricity and heating and cooling in 2020 and adequate measures to be taken to achieve those national overall targets.

  • National Emission Reduction Plan

    National Emission Reduction Plan

    The Large Combustion Plants Directive took effect on 1 January 2018 in the Energy Community. For existing large combustion plants, two alternative implementation avenues exist: either compliance with the emission limit values for SO2, NOx and dust at individual plant level, or implementation of a National Emission Reduction Plan (NERP). Every plant must be covered by either of the two options.

    North Macedonia adopted a National Emission Reduction Plan (NERP) for large combustion plants in April 2017 and has started with its implementation on 1 January 2018. There are no large combustion plants under the opt-out regime in this Contracting Party.

  • National Energy and Climate Plan (NECP)

    National Energy and Climate Plan

    The EU's Clean Energy Package includes a robust governance system, under which each Member State is required to establish integrated 10-year National Energy and Climate Plans (NECPs). Based on a common structure, the NECPs outline how the Member States will achieve their respective targets on all dimensions of the energy union, including a longer-term view towards 2050.

    The NECPs follow a life cycle perspective: draft plan / recommendation / final plan / assessment / update of the plan, and in parallel the drafting of a plan for the next period slowly begins.
