Total Energy consumption

At 3.1 toe, total energy consumption per capita is on par with the EU average; power consumption per capita stands 18% lower, at 4 600 kWh (2016).

Total energy consumption has been declining since 2002 (-1.3%/year between 2002 and 2014). Despite a 2.7% increase in 2015 to 16.5 Mtoe - it was stable in 2016 - energy consumption remains below its 2009 level.

Crude oil production

Slovakia produces limited amounts of crude oil (on average 150 kt/year since 2013), which is used in the petrochemical industry only.

All the imported crude oil comes from Russia through the Druzhba pipeline (5.7 Mt in 2016). The pipeline, with a capacity of 20 Mt/year in the Slovak section, runs through Belarus and Ukraine. Oil is exported to Croatia through the Adria pipeline, which ...

CO2 fuel combustion/CO2 emissions

Slovakia's GHG emissions were well below its Kyoto target, with emissions in 2012 42% lower than in 1990 (target of -8%). In 2015, GHG emissions increased by 1.5%, but dipped by 0.6% in 2016, according to preliminary estimates: they are still 42% below their 1990 level, at around 41 MtCO2eq. Ahead of the COP 21, Slovakia has announced a binding GHG emission reduction target of at least 40% ...
