Crude oil production

As the country's only refinery ceased operating in 1998, Slovenia imports oil products (4.5 Mt in 2016). Italy is its largest supplier (35% in 2016), followed by the United States (11%) and Russia. According to preliminary statistics, oil imports dipped by 0.4% in 2017.

Natural gas consumption

Natural gas consumption, which had contracted by more than 30% between 2007 and 2014, grew by 6.1%/year until 2016, due to a higher demand from the power sector. According to preliminary statistics, gas demand for power generation rose by 5.1% in 2017 and final consumption remained stable.

Coal consumption

Coal and lignite consumption, which slightly eroded between 2002 and 2012 (-1.2%/year), collapsed in 2013 and 2014 due to a much lower demand from the power sector. Indeed, most of lignite is used for power production (97% in 2016); coal and lignite consumption has increased since then (+5% in...

Power consumption

The dynamic growth in electricity consumption (+3.3%/year between 2000 and 2007) was stalled by the economic crisis in 2008-2009. Since 2011, electricity consumption has been growing by 0.8%/year and reached 13.1 TWh in 2016. It is estimated to have increased by 1.8% in 2017 to 13.3 TWh.


Renewable in % electricity production

According to the European Directive on renewables, the national target is to raise the share of renewables in final consumption to 25% in 2020 (of which 10.5% in transport, 31% for heating and more than 39% for electricity). To reach that target, the 2010 energy policy fixed targets for...
