Public utility Elektromreža Srbije (EMS), Serbia’s transmission system operator (TSO), should start issuing guarantees of origin, documents providing information on the source of energy, by the end of the year. It is also expected that EMS will become one of the European transmission system operators that publish 100% of key market data on the ENTSO-E transparency platform EMFIP.

According to Marko Janković, Director of the Electricity Market Division in EMS, these activities will be the next step in the development of the electricity market in Serbia.

As the main drivers of this development, he stated implementation of the remaining obligations stipulated by the Energy Law and the Energy Community Treaty, harmonization of the Serbian legislation with the EU network rules and implementation of the best European practice which will sum up the market model in Serbia and ensure integration into the European market.

“By the end of the year, EMS should issue its first guarantee of origin. This certificate provides evidence of the source of electricity being produced and information on whether the energy is produced from renewable or conventional sources. EMS also plans to become a member of the AIB, the EU association of issuing bodies. By the end of the year, we also expect EMS to be in the group of European operators that, in accordance with EU regulations, publish 100% of key market data on the ‘Electricity Market Fundamental Information Platform’ (EMFIP). This platform provides data on all power plants outages, what’s coming in the near future, and the reviews of why something happened,” Janković explained at the Regional Electricity Market conference , organized by Balkanmagazin.

As additional obligations in this section, he also mentioned the roll-out of smart meters at the distribution level, an introduction of the system services market and the market mechanism for the selection of a guaranteed supplier, and the development of the end-customer market by introducing an energy-supplier switching platform.

Janković said that harmonization of national legislation with the European network rules will enable Serbia to integrate regionally or both regionally and on the EU level.
