Director of the Delegation of the German Economy in Macedonia Patrick Martens warns that Macedonia is entering an energy crisis and notes that MEPSO has so far received four warnings for unannounced intrusion into the European network.
“North Macedonia is entering an energy crisis. The country currently consumes twice as much electricity as it produces and draws electricity from the European grid to meet its daily needs. The state electricity transmission operator, MEPSO, has so far received four warnings of unannounced intrusion into the European grid. As a result, the government declared a 30-day crisis in the energy sector on Tuesday. Macedonian manufacturing companies are concerned about the impending energy crisis, but also about the consequences of the lack of electricity,” Martens wrote in the Delegation’s morning telegram.
At Tuesday’s session, the Government adopted a decision to declare a state of crisis in the energy sector for 30 days at the request of the Commission for monitoring the situation with electricity supply established by the Ministry of Economy.
