From January to December 2022, Serbia imported electricity worth slightly less than 1.6 billion euros. The value of natural gas imports in the same period was more than 1.6 billion euros, according to the data of the Republic Statistical Office (RZS).

The value of gas imports increased almost four times (282 percent) compared to last year, although the amount of imported gas increased by only 19 percent.

Electricity imports in 2022 increased more than three times (231 percent) compared to 2021, when Serbia paid 475 million euros for electricity imports.

Let us remind you that the EPS with increased electricity imports started at the end of 2021, when there was a collapse in electricity production.

Data on electricity imports for 2021 and 2022 have been revised due to the changed scope of electricity.

Therefore, the data for the year 2020 are currently not comparable with the latest data, and later the correct data for that and earlier years will be published, RZS told Nova Ekonomija.

In the course of 2022, slightly less than 2.2 billion tons of natural gas in gaseous state were imported.

Most of the gas came from Russia (1.8 billion tons), Hungary (350 million tons) and Bulgaria (17.5 million tons).

Imports from Russia cost 943 million euros, from Hungary 670 million euros, and from Bulgaria 18.5 million euros.

The data also shows the difference in the price of gas imports from Russia and Hungary.

One ton of natural gas from Russia cost about half a euro on average, and from Hungary 1.9 euros.

The value of imported natural gas was 409 million euros in 2020, and 427 million euros in 2021.

Last year, Serbia mostly imported electricity from Bulgaria, Hungary, Denmark, Bosnia and Herzegovina and North Macedonia.
