Bulgaria will export electricity to North Macedonia. This became clear after a meeting between Prime Ministers Galab Donev and Dimitar Kovachevski.

“We discussed a decision on the supply of electricity in 2023. We agreed to form a working group from the ministries of economy and energy, in which the capacity for transporting electricity and prices will be discussed.” This was announced by the Prime Minister of North Macedonia, Kovacevski.

“If two years ago we were discussing the pandemic that shut down the world, now the crisis is about the shortage of electricity, the Prime Minister of North Macedonia pointed out.”

“Bulgaria is traditionally an energy leader in the region, which guarantees security in the sector of the Balkans. The export of about 200 megawatt hours of basic uniform energy will be for the period until March 31, 2023,” specified Prime Minister Galab Donev.

“The main topic on which we talked with Prime Minister Donev and his delegation was the energy crisis, which has shaken all the economies of the world. If two years ago we were fighting the COVID-19 pandemic, which blocked the world, and the shortage of vaccines – now we are fighting the shortage of electricity and expensive energy carriers, which bring big problems for both citizens and businesses,” he pointed out.

According to him, the supply of electricity has been agreed to ensure the needs of the business. “For this purpose, a working group composed of experts from the ministries of energy and economy of our two countries will be formed. They will discuss the technical parameters for the supply of electricity, the capacity and the prices, which will be determined according to the legislation of the Republic of Bulgaria and that of the RSM”, said the North Macedonian Prime Minister.

From what Kovachevski said, it became clear that the two prime ministers also talked about the possibilities of the “Chiren” gas storage facility. The PM of RSM also expressed hope that within two weeks there will be a solution for both Skopje and Sofia, as well as for businesses and household consumers.
