NewsReduction in energy losses reported by Montenegro's Electric Distribution System

Reduction in energy losses reported by Montenegro’s Electric Distribution System

In the first quarter, the distribution network recorded a decrease in electrical energy losses to 11.62 percent, marking an improvement compared to the 12.27 percent reported during the same period last year, according to the Montenegrin Electric Distribution System (CEDIS).

The company attributed this progress to ongoing efforts aimed at reducing losses and enhancing the efficiency and reliability of the distribution system.

During the first three months of this year, the energy intake amounted to 816.24 thousand megawatt-hours (MWh), with losses reduced to 94.84 thousand MWh or 11.62 percent. This signifies a significant decrease from the 100.18 thousand MWh or 12.27 percent reported in the first quarter of the previous year.

This reduction resulted in savings compared to the same period last year, totaling 5.35 thousand MWh. When multiplied by the contracted price per MWh for this year (100.59 EUR), the total savings amounted to 537.84 thousand EUR.

The company emphasized that the visible impact of loss reduction underscores the economic efficiency and operational quality of the electricity distribution activities. Thus, minimizing losses remains a key business objective.

Vaso Zeković, Head of the Measurement Sector, highlighted that losses were consistently reduced by over 0.5 percent monthly last year, alongside a continuous increase in electricity intake. In September last year, the lowest loss level ever measured in Montenegro’s distribution system was achieved, reaching 8.1 percent.

Key factors contributing to loss reduction include actions within the Measurement Sector, such as identifying illegal users, controlling losses at transformer stations, and expanding the third phase of AMM.

However, CEDIS faces challenges due to unplanned construction, leading to an unplanned burden on existing infrastructure, increasing maintenance costs, and reducing investment effectiveness.

Despite these challenges, the company is committed to saving significant financial resources and aims to end the year with losses below ten percent, even amidst global uncertainties in the energy market.
