  • Institutions & Energy Policy

    Bosnia and Herzegovina is a Balkan country that became independent from Yugoslavia in 1992. Since the signing of the Dayton Peace Agreement in 1995, the country has been split in two entities, the Federation of Bosnia and Herzegovina (FBiH) and the Republic of Srpska (RS); in addition, the district of Brčko has a special status.

    The energy sector is organised along those lines with ...

  • Energy Companies


    The power sector consists of three vertically integrated public monopolies (90% public): Elektroprivreda BiH (EP BIH), Elektroprivreda RS (ERS) and Elektroprivreda HZ HB (EP HZ HB). The power companies are synchronised and interconnected but there is no competition among them; they are virtual monopolies within their exclusive service territories (no unbundling of distribution companies).

  • Energy Supply


    The indigenous energy sources are lignite and hydro. Lignite reserves are significant and estimated at about 2.3 Gt. The economically exploitable hydro potential is estimated at 19 TWh. The potential of other renewables is estimated at 2.5-5.9 GW for wind, up to 1 GW for solar and up to 857 MW for biomass. Oil resources are estimated at 73 mbl.

  • Energy Prices


    Electricity prices are set by the entity regulators FERC and RERS and differ for the three electricity companies. The tariffs depend on the time of day, as well as on the seasons (seasonal gap of around 30%). Prices are much lower than the EU average (38% lower for industry and 59% lower for households in 2018). Residential prices have been increasing since 2017, while industrial prices ...

  • Energy Consumption

    The country's overall consumption per capita reaches 1.8 toe (37% below the EU average in 2018) with electricity accounting for 3 350 kWh (38% below the EU average).

    The country's total consumption increased rapidly between 2015 and 2017 (+5.5%/year) and remained stable in 2018 at 6.4 Mtoe. It increased very rapidly between 1995 and 2011 (+10%/year) and declined until ...
