Browse the tabs below for a detailed table of contents, the list of graphs and tables, and details on the data files.


  • Croatia exceeded by more than 10 points its renewable target in 2020 and now aims at a share of 42.5% of renewables in the final consumption in 2030.
  • HEP, a state-owned company, dominates the electricity market, with around 70% of generation and over 90% of retail electricity sales.
  • INA is the sole oil and gas producer.
  • The power mix is highly dependent on hydropower.
  • Oil production is marginal and gas production is decreasing rapidly.
  • The government introduced support measures to limit the surge in energy prices in 2022 and 2023.
  • Energy consumption declined again in 2022.
  • Renewables cover 32% of total energy consumption in 2022.
  • Plinacro plans to double the capacity of the Krk LNG terminal to 6.1 bcm/year and convert its gas transmission networks to use hydrogen.

  • Institutions & Energy Policy

    The Ministry of Economy and Sustainable Development oversees the energy policy through the Energy Directorate, along with environment and climate change matters.

    The Energy Regulation Agency (HERA), created in 2004, regulates the energy sector and controls electricity and gas prices, except for feed-in tariffs, biofuels and CHP (consulting role).

  • Energy Companies


    In 2013, HEP (100% State owned) was split into five entities dealing with electricity generation, transmission, distribution, supply, and trade.

  • Energy Supply


    Croatia has limited oil and gas resources (10 Mt and 4.7 bcm end of 2022) and no coal reserves. Its renewable potential is estimated at 37 GW for wind (of which, 25 GW offshore), at 6.8 GW for solar (of which, 1.5 GW for rooftop), and at 0.5 GW for geothermal.

  • Energy Prices


    Gas prices for industrial customers, which were rather stable between 2016 and 2020, started to rise in 2021 (+47% in 2021, followed by an 84% surge in 2022) before falling by 17% in 2023. For households, prices only grew by 12% in 2022 and decreased by 5% in 2023.

  • Energy Consumption

    Energy consumption per capita is stable at 2.2 toe, with electricity accounting for 4 300 kWh (2022). These figures are around 25% below the EU averages.


  • Issues & Prospects

    According to its draft update NECP (National Energy and Climate Plan), primary energy consumption and final energy consumption should decrease to 341 PJ (8.1 Mtoe) and 274 PJ (6.6 Mtoe), respectively.

The Croatia energy market data since 1990 and up to is included in the Excel file accompanying the Croatia country report.
It showcases the historical evolution, allowing users to easily work with the data.

Key Data included in the excelsheet:

  • Economic indicators: Annual historical economic indicators, energy security, energy efficiency and CO2 emissions.
  • Supply indicators: Annual historical reserves, capacity, production and external trade (imports(+) exports(-) balance).
  • Demand indicators: Annual historical consumption per capita, consumption trends, total consumption, final consumption (per energy and per sector) and electricity consumption total and per sector.
  • Energy Balance: total and per energy.
  • Croatia Energy Prices: In addition to the analysis provided on the report we also provided a data set which includes historical details on the Croatia energy prices for the follow items: price of premium gasoline (taxes incl.), price of diesel (taxes incl.), price of electricity in industry (taxes incl.), price of electricity for households (taxes incl.), price of natural gas in industry (taxes incl.), prices of natural gas for households (taxes incl.), spot price of Brent and CO2 emissions (from fuel combustion).
