State of compliance
Serbia has transposed and implemented key Energy Community Treaty obligations, including on quality reporting on annual statistics. To achieve full compliance, Serbia must implement reporting on short-term monthly collections as defined in the acquis, specifically in terms of monthly oil data collections.
Regulation (EC) 1099/2008
Regulation (EC) 1099/2008 on Energy Statistics
SORS collects, compiles and disseminates annual energy statistics comprising supply, transformation and consumption of solid fuels, gas, oil, oil derivatives, electricity, heat and renewable energy. The data are collected from regular annual surveys from companies operating in the energy sector, including traders, administrative sources and surveys in industry, transport and construction. The data is available on the website of SORS and in the form of five questionnaires communicated to IEA and EUROSTAT. Annual energy statistics are published by EUROSTAT.
Disaggregated data on energy consumption in households, as defined by Regulation (EU) 431/2014 amending Regulation (EC) 1099/2008, are compiled and transmitted to EUROSTAT in due time.
The acquis related to annual statistics is implemented.
SORS is responsible for disseminating monthly data. Monthly electricity, coal and natural gas data are collected and transmitted to EUROSTAT. Short-term monthly collections on natural gas, oil and electricity are yet to be provided. Failing to collect and submit to EUROSTAT its monthly oil statistics, Serbia does not comply with Annex C and Annex D of Regulation (EC) 1099/2008 as well as with the General Policy Guideline on Roadmap on Implementation of Certain Deadlines of Council Directive 2009/119/EC in the Energy Community.
SORS currently produces quality reports for statistical surveys. The quality report on annual energy statistics is transmitted to EUROSTAT, in accordance with the Regulation.
Regulation (EU) 2016/1952
Regulation (EU) 2016/1952 on European statistics on natural gas and electricity prices
SORS is responsible for price statistics. Questionnaires for collection of gas and electricity prices charged to industry and households were developed in accordance with EUROSTAT methodology. Prices of electricity and natural gas charged to households and non-households end users, per consumption band and the price breakdown per component and level of taxation are submitted to EUROSTAT in accordance with the acquis.
Price system reporting is established in accordance with the acquis.
