Oil products consumption

Oil consumption, which declined between 2011 and 2015 (-2.9%/year), rose by 5.3% in 2016 to 2.3 Mt and remained stable in 2017.


More than 3/4 of the oil products are consumed by the transport sector, 13% by the residential tertiary sector and 10% by industry (including non-energy uses) (2017).

Natural gas consumption

Natural gas consumption, which had contracted by more than 30% between 2007 and 2014, grew by 5.7%/year until 2017, due to a higher demand from industry (+5.6%) and from the power sector (+21% in 2017).


About 60% of gas consumption is intended for industry and 13% is used to supply power plants. Households and services account for ...

Coal consumption

Lignite consumption, which slightly eroded between 2002 and 2012 (by 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 (98% in 2017); lignite consumption slightly increased in 2016 (+4.8%) to 3.8 Mt and remained stable in 2017.

Power consumption

Since 2011, electricity consumption has been growing by 1.3%/year and reached 13.6 TWh in 2017. Before the economic crisis of 2008-2009, electricity consumption grew quite rapidly (+3.3%/year between 2000 and 2007).


Industry is the largest electricity consuming sector, with 47% in 2017, followed by households and services (around 1/4 ...

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); in 2017, renewables were estimated to account for nearly 22% of gross final energy consumption (2.7% in transport, 34% for heating and 31% for electricity).

CO2 fuel combustion/CO2 emissions

Slovenia's GHG emissions were slightly under the Kyoto target, as in 2012 they were 7% below their 1986 level, compared to a target of 8%. GHG emissions have declined by 18% since their 2008 peak, bringing them to 18 Mt in 2016.

Slovenia aims to cap its GHG emissions not covered by the ETS to 12.1 Mt by 2020. Ahead of the COP 21, Slovenia announced a binding GHG emission reduction ...
