Index Commentary

Macedonia moves up nine places in the Index, a jump driven by improvements in energy security and energy equity. Macedonia continues to struggle with balancing the three dimensions of the energy trilemma, with a decent level of energy equity being counterbalanced by energy security and environmental sustainability rankings that are in the bottom quartile of the world. Energy security increases this year, with the net importer boosting its domestic production and increasing the diversity of its electricity generation portfolio. Energy equity also improves, rising with the perceived quality of electricity services. However, performance on the environmental sustainability dimension, Macedonia’s weakest, still lags behind. Although CO2 emissions from electricity generation are down, energy and emission intensity increase, and pollution levels continue to pose a challenge. Performance on contextual indicators of political and societal strength is relatively constant, while macroeconomic stability weakens.
