  • By 2030, Slovakia aims to reach 19% of renewables in final energy consumption.
  • Historical companies still dominate the power and gas markets: 62% of power generation for SE and 59% of gas sales to end customers for SPP.
  • E.ON controls most power distribution and sales.
  • Slovnaft operates the sole refinery.
  • Nuclear dominates the power mix with more than half of power generation.
  • Most of the oil and gas supplies were imported from Russia in 2021.
  • Residential electricity and gas prices are significantly lower than the EU average (by 25% and 35%, respectively) and have decreased considerably since 2013.
  • Primary energy intensity to the GDP is decreasing very rapidly (3%/year since 2010).
  • Gas consumption rose by 12% in 2021, as consumption from the power sector surged by 22%.
  • Two nuclear units will be commissioned in 2023 and 2024.
  • Slovakia is strengthening its gas interconnections in Central Europe and is planning a major gas pipeline to Bulgaria.

  • Institutions & Energy Policy

    Energy issues are the responsibility of the Ministry of Economy, through its Energy Section.

    The Office for Regulation of Network Industries (URSO) regulates the electricity and gas sector. The Ministry of Economy may reject the decisions taken by the regulator regarding energy prices but is obliged to publish its objections.

  • Energy Supply


    Natural gas production is limited (65.9 mcm in 2021, stable according to preliminary data) and imports cover most of gas consumption. Imports decreased between 2005 and 2018, from 7.4 bcm to 4.4 bcm, and surged by 47% in 2019 to 6.5 bcm, as gas demand from the power sector nearly doubled. In 2020, gas imports came back to 2018 levels of 4.3 bcm and are expected to decrease by 20% in 2021.

  • Energy Prices


    After a slight decrease in 2020, electricity prices for industry came back to their upward trend started in 2017 (+2.6%/year). After three years of increase (+3.3%/year between 2017 and 2020), electricity price for households contracted by 3% in 2021. Previously, electricity prices doubled between 2000 and 2013, before declining by 4%/year on average until 2016.

  • Energy Consumption

    At 3.3 toe, total energy consumption per capita is 7% above the EU average; power consumption per capita is 14% lower (4 900 kWh) (2021).

    Total energy consumption surged in 2021 to 17.9 Mtoe after a 3% drop in 2020, surpassing its 2019 levels (pre-Covid) by 4.5%. It fell between 2002 and 2014 (-1.3%/year), then recovered until 2017 (+2.9%/year until 2017) before stabilising in 2018.

  • Issues & Prospects


    According to Eustream, gas consumption is expected to remain stable until 2029, at around 135 GWh/d (around 4.8 bcm/year).
