  • Institutions & Energy Policy

    The Ministry of Environmental Protection and Energy (MZOIE) oversees the energy, environment and climate change policy.

    The EnergyRegulation Agency (HERA), created in 2004, regulates the energy sector and controls all prices, except for feed-in tariffs, biofuels and CHP (consulting role).

    The Croatian Energy Market Operator (HROTE) oversees the public service of electricity and ...

  • Energy Companies


    In 2013, HEP (100% State owned) was split into five entities dealing with electricity generation, transmission, distribution, supply and trade. The Government is considering selling more than 25% of HEP.

  • Energy Supply


    Croatia has limited oil and gas resources (12 Mt and 6 bcm end of 2018) and no coal reserves. Its wind potential is estimated at up to 11.8 GW and its solar potential at up to 3.2 GW.

  • Energy Prices


    Electricity prices for households are regulated. The prices of electricity for households and industry have been increasing since 2016 (+5.5%/year for industry and +0.5%/year for households). In 2018, the electricity price for the residential sector was 38% lower than the average EU price, while the price for industry was 6% below.


  • Energy Consumption

    Energy consumption per capita is 2.2 toe, with electricity accounting for nearly 4 100 kWh (2018). These figures are 31% and 27% below the EU averages, respectively.


    Total energy consumption increased by 2.8%/year between 2014 and 2017 with the economic recovery and remained stable at 8.8 Mtoe in 2018. Previously, it ...

  • Issues & Prospects

    According to its NECP (National Energy and Climate Plan) of December 2019, primary consumption should reach 372 PJ (8.9 Mtoe) in 2030 and 343 PJ (8.1 Mtoe) in 2050 (scenario with existing measures). Energy production should increase to 208 PJ (5 Mtoe) in 2030, with more than half coming from renewables.
