Annual energy statistics for 2018 are compiled in the five questionnaires, transmitted on time and published by EUROSTAT. Disaggregated data on energy consumption of households are compiled and transmitted to EUROSTAT in due time. Preliminary data for 2019 are also compiled and transmitted to EUROSTAT. The questionnaire on the renewables share for 2018 was also transmitted to and published by EUROSTAT. SORS has established a quality management system based on written procedures and policies. The quality reports for statistical surveys are submitted to EUROSTAT.
SORS is responsible for disseminating monthly data. In cooperation with the Ministry of Mining and Energy monthly electricity, coal and natural gas data are collected and transmitted to EUROSTAT. Monthly oil data are still not transmitted in line with the acquis. Short-term monthly collections on natural gas, oil and electricity are yet to be provided.
Half-yearly prices of electricity and gas for industry and households per consumption band, as well as the price breakdown per component, are submitted to EUROSTAT in accordance with Regulation (EU) 2016/1952.
To fully comply with the statistics acquis, Serbia must implement the remaining reporting requirements related to short term monthly data, primarily on oil.
