Crude oil production

The country produces less than 1 Mt of oil per year (0.7 Mt in 2015). Crude oil imports were relatively stable at around 4 Mt until 2010 and have varied around 3 Mt since then, mainly due to the low utilisation rate of the refineries.

The refining capacity is 134 000 bbl/d, spread over...

Coal consumption

Coal consumption more than tripled between 1999 and 2004 following the commissioning of the 210 MW Plomin-2 coal-fired power plant. Coal consumption then kept stable at around 1.2 Mt/year until 2011. It dropped by 4.9%/year on average since then, driven by the power plant sector (-8.7%/year on...

Power consumption

Electricity consumption decreased slowly between 2008 and 2014, at the average pace of 1.4%/year, before rising again in 2015 (+2%). Previously, electricity consumption saw a strong increase between 2000 and 2008 (nearly +4%/year).



Renewable in % electricity production

The National Renewable Energy Action Plan (NREAP), adopted in 2013, targets a share of 20% of renewables in the final energy consumption in 2020 (27.9% in 2014), including 39% in power production (45.3% in 2014), 10% in transport (2.1% in 2014) and 20% in heating and cooling (36.2% in 2014)....
