Total Energy consumption

Energy consumption per capita amounts to 2.2 toe (29% below the EU average), including 4 200 kWh of electricity (26% below the EU average) (2018).

Total energy consumption rose by 4.1%/year between 2014 and 2017 but declined by 1.4% in 2018 to 15.4 Mtoe (lower coal consumption due to a higher hydro availability). It declined by 3%/year between 2004 and 2014, reaching 13 Mtoe, its ...

Crude oil production

After a period of decline, crude oil production nearly doubled between 2008 and 2013 to 1.2 Mt following the acquisition of NIS by Gazprom. However, it has been declining since then, dipping by 5.1%/year to around 950 kt in 2018. Production covers around 25% of domestic oil supply. The oil fields are located in Vojvodine, in the north of the country; the remainder of the consumption is ...

Renewable in % electricity production

The National Action Plan for Renewable Energy (NREAP), released in 2013, set a target of 27% of renewables in the final energy consumption in 2020 (37% for electricity, 30% for heating and 10% for transport). However, Serbia is likely to miss its 2020 target, with only 20% in 2018 (of which 29% for electricity, 24% for heating and 1.2% for transport).

In 2016, the government approved ...

CO2 fuel combustion/CO2 emissions

Serbia's Nationally Determined Contribution (NDC) aims at cutting greenhouse (GHG) emissions by 9.8% in 2030, compared with 1990 levels (that included Kosovo with its coal-fired power plants). As GHG emissions already fell by 22% between 1990 and 2016, this would correspond to a 15% increase over the 2016 level.

CO2 emissions from energy combustion have remained relatively stable ...
