Total Energy consumption

Per capita consumption is 3.3 toe (close to the EU average, 2018). Electricity consumption per capita is 6 635 kWh (18% above the EU average).

Graph: CONSUMPTION TRENDS BY ENERGY SOURCE (Mtoe)

The country's total consumption contracted by 2.4%/year between 2008 and 2015 but recovered (+2.6%/year) until 2017, when it reached 6.9 Mtoe. It remained stable in 2018.

Crude oil production

As the country's only refinery ceased operating in 1998, Slovenia imports all its oil products (4.7 Mt in 2018). Italy is its largest supplier (29% in 2018), followed by the United States (13%), and Russia (11%).

Oil products consumption

Oil consumption, which declined between 2011 and 2015 (-2.9%/year), has remained broadly stable since then (2.3 Mt in 2018).

Graph: OIL CONSUMPTION (Mt)

More than 3/4 of the oil products are consumed by the transport sector, 13% by the residential tertiary sector and 11% by industry (including non-energy uses) (2018).

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 and from the power sector. In 2018, gas consumption dipped by 1.2% (lower needs from the power sector).

Coal consumption

Lignite consumption, which slightly eroded between 2002 and 2012 (by 1.2%/year), collapsed in 2013 and 2014 due to much lower demand from the power sector; 95% of lignite was used for power production in 2017. Lignite consumption has remained roughly stable since then (3.7 Mt in 2018).

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 accounted for nearly 22% of final energy consumption (2.7% in transport, 34% for heating and 31% for electricity).

CO2 fuel combustion/CO2 emissions

GHG emissions have declined by 19% since 2008, to 17.5 Mt in 2017; they were slightly under the Kyoto target (7% below their 1986 level in 2012, compared to a target of 8%).

Slovenia aims to cap its GHG emissions not covered by the ETS to 12.1 Mt by 2020. The Energy Concept of 2018 set a reduction target for GHG emissions of at least 40% by 2030 (same as NDC) and at least 80% by 2050 ...
