The most important problems which energy sector faces in Macedonia are unfavourable energy mix with high prevalence of lignite, strong dependence on energy import, poor condition of the energy systems and high degree of inefficiency in energy production and use. In 2005, the share of renewable energy sources (RES) in the final energy consumption was 13.8%, mainly biomass and hydro. This paper investigates the prospects for realization of a 100% renewable energy system in Macedonia by making use of the EnergyPLAN model. This model accounts all sectors of the national energy system which are needed to be considered in the case of high penetration of the renewables. Special attention has been given to the intermittent sources, pump storage hydro and electric vehicles. The assumed dynamics for the RES share is 50% in 2030 and 100% in 2050. It has been shown that 100% renewable energy system in Macedonia can be achieved with the high penetration of wind and electric vehicles used as storage.
