Total Energy consumption

Energy consumption per capita amounts to 2.2 toe (30% below the EU average), including 4 100 kWh of electricity (27% below the EU average) (2016).

Total energy consumption declined by 2.8%/year between 2004 and 2014, reaching 13 Mtoe, its lowest level since 2000 (2014 floods cut lignite consumption by 23%). Energy consumption has recovered since then, rising by 11% in 2015 and by 5% ...

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 coal resources and 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 remained relatively ...
