How Macedonia, the citizens and ELEM, today’s ESM, are being robbed! What is the relationship between ELEM/ESM, the Albanian state energy company KESH, the company ETMT Energy DOOEL Skopje (a favorite buyer of ELEM/ESM’s surplus electricity) and the company from Tirana ENERTRADE?, the leader of VMRO-DPMNE Hristijan Mickoski posted on Facebook.
Mickoski says the common denominator that connects all these entities is corruption and damage to the citizens of Macedonia. How?
Namely, ESM/ELEM announces an announcement for the sale of night surplus electricity for the period from August 30 to September 6, from 2 am to 7 am in a total amount of 2000 MWh (picture 1). The Albanian state energy company KESH also announces a tender for the purchase of electricity for the period from August 29 to September 4 following a similar profile as that of ELEM/ESM in a total amount of 2100 MWh (Image 2).
The price at which night surpluses are sold to the company ETMT Energy dooel Skopje is 337/MWh (Image 1), and the price at which the Albanian state energy company KESH buys the electricity according to a similar profile is 525.55 €/MWh (Image 3).
If the cross-border capacities for August and September from Macedonia to Kosovo and from Kosovo to Albania are included in the price, which in total amount to 9.17 €/MWh for August, and 15.65 €/MWh in September, then the total cost for the electricity purchased in Macedonia including cross-border facilities and bank charges (1%) for the period from August 30 to September 4 and profile from 2 to 6 am, amount to about €350,000, and the same electricity in Albania is sold for €525,550. The difference in the price of the electricity bought in Macedonia, transferred to Albania and sold there is about 10,800,000 denars.
