Abstract

Although renewable energy sources (RES) usage for electricity production is not at all new, until recently (apart from large hydro power plants), its contribution to Macedonia’s electricity production was negligible. Country’s commitment for becoming an EU member state brought many reforms. The energy sector, previously with no strategic vision of its development and no sustainability, has begun to transform to comply with the market economy model. Macedonia made efforts to fulfill the commitments coming from the EU candidate status including reforming the energy sector and prioritizing RES policy and its implementation. Renewable energy sources can be divided into two main categories: traditional renewable energy sources such as biomass and large hydro power plants (HPPs) and the so called "new renewable energy sources" such as the solar energy, wind energy, geothermal energy, etc. Analysis presented in this article refers to growth in electricity production from renewable energy sources in the last decade while taking into account possibilities as well as barriers for its further growth.
