Government in fYROMacedonia continues plans for the full liberalisation of the electricity market
According to the bill of the government in fYROMacedonia on energy issues - the formulation of which is expected to have been completed by the government by the end of 2017 and then sent to the House for discussion and vote - come 2019, households in the country will have the option to choose whether to buy electricity from the free market or through a global supplier.

The bill introduces the third and final phase of liberalization of the electricity market in the country.

It should be noted that in previous years there was liberalization of the market for large consumers (domestic industries) in 2008 (the first phase of liberalization of the electricity market in FYROM) and then 230 companies with annual revenues of at least EUR 10 million EUR million and more than 50 staff in April 2014 (second phase).

The third and last phase (for households) leading to the full liberalization of the electricity market has been delayed long enough, as the previous government in the country had suspended the start of the third phase, since October 2014, based on the assumption that full liberalisation would lead to an increase in the price of electricity by 18-20% for 600,000 households./IBNA
