Macedonia has reduced its greenhouse emissions by 34.6 percent between 1990 and 2016, the Institute for Public Health said.

In this period, one main coal plant – REK Oslomej – largely went offline, as did the oil fired TEC Negotino. Macedonia is currently in the midst of a major energy crisis as the remaining key generator – REK Bitola – is almost out of coal due to corruption and mismanagement.
