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.

Oil products consumption

Oil consumption, which declined between 2011 and 2015 (-2.9%/year), rose by 5% in 2016 to 2.3 Mt. According to preliminary statistics, it remained stable in 2017.


More than 3/4 of the oil products are consumed by the transport sector, 14% by the residential tertiary sector and 9% by industry (including non-energy uses) (2016).

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.


About 60% of gas consumption is intended for ...

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 2016 to 3.8 Mt). Coal consumption from the power sector dipped by 1% in 2017.

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 renewable capacities in 2020 (e.g. 119 MW for wind, 336 MW for solar).

In 2014, Slovenia amended ...

CO2 fuel combustion/CO2 emissions

Slovenia's GHG emissions were slightly under the target of the Kyoto Protocol, as in 2012 they were 7% below their 1986 level, compared to a target of 8%. GHG emissions have declined by 22% since their 2008 peak, bringing them to 17 Mt in 2015.

Slovenia aims to cap its GHG emissions to 12.1 Mt until 2020. Ahead of the COP 21, Slovenia announced a binding GHG emission reduction target ...
