The Energy Agency of the Republic of Serbia (“AERS”) adopted three decisions on amendments of the following methodologies, on its session held on 7 July 2022:

  • Methodology for Determining Price for Access to the Natural Gas Transmission System,
  • Methodology for Determining Price for Access to the Natural Gas Distribution System, and
  • Methodology for Determining Price for Public Supply of the Natural Gas.

By these amendments, AERS harmonized the said methodologies with the new Regulation on Conditions for Delivery and Supply of Natural Gas (“Official gazette of the RS” no. 49/2022).

The main amendment was made in respect to change of the measurement unit of natural gas when determining respective prices, and now, instead of m3, the kWh is used.

Furthermore, by said decisions, operators of natural gas transmission/distribution system and public supplier are obliged to submit their decisions on new prices to AERS for approval, until 01 August 2022 at the latest. New prices shall be calculated by dividing current tariffs by 10,26 and will be applicable starting from the next gas year i.e., from 01 October 2022.
