  • By 2030, Slovenia aims to cap primary energy demand at 6.4 Mtoe and to cover 27% of final energy consumption with renewables.
  • HSE, a state-owned company, represents around 60% of the power generation.
  • Geoplin dominates the gas market (nearly 80% of the wholesale market and half of the retail market in 2019).
  • National company Petrol is the largest fuel retailer.
  • Two-thirds of the power mix is CO2-free.
  • Electricity prices are 25% lower than the EU average.
  • Industrial gas prices fell by 44% between 2012 and 2017, twice as fast as the EU average.
  • Total energy consumption has been declining slightly since 2017.
  • Energy intensity is 25% higher than the EU average (2019).
  • Slovenia is developing many electricity and gas interconnection projects.
  • With the exception of a 420 MW hydropower project, the development of large capacities remains uncertain.

  • Institutions & Energy Policy

    The Energy Directorate of the Ministry of Infrastructure is in charge of defining the energy policy objectives.

    The Energy Agency (Agencija za energijo) is in charge of regulating the energy markets.

  • Energy Companies


    Petrol is the national oil company (32.3% state-owned). In 2019, Petrol sold 3.7 Mt of oil products, 43% of which in Slovenia.

  • Energy Supply


    Slovenia's energy resources are limited to subbituminous coal and lignite (315 Mt of lignite) and hydroelectricity (12 TWh). Its independence rate stood at 52% in 2019.

  • Energy Prices


    Residential gas prices have been increasing since 2017 (+2.6%/year until 2020), while this rising trend was interrupted in 2020 for industrial prices (-15% in 2020). Gas prices tripled for industry and doubled for households between 2004 and 2012, and collapsed until 2017 (by 11%/year and 6.6%/year, respectively) before recovering until 2019.

  • Energy Consumption

    Per capita consumption is 3.3 toe (nearly 8% higher than the EU average in 2019). Electricity consumption per capita exceeds 6 600 kWh (20% above the EU average).

    Slovenia's energy intensity has decreased at the same rate as the EU average (-1.9%/year over 2000-2019) and remained 25% higher in 2019.


  • Issues & Prospects


    According to ELES's 2021-2030 development plan total capacity could increase to up to 4.7 GW in 2030.
