Total Energy Consumption

The country's overall consumption per capita reaches 1.8 toe (34% below the EU average in 2020) with electricity accounting for 3 121 kWh (40% below the EU average).

The country's total consumption declined by 3.2% in 2019 and 6.5% in 2020 to 5.9 Mtoe after a rapid increase between 2015 and 2017 (+5.5%/year) and stability in 2018. It had increased very rapidly between 1995 and 2011 (+10%/year) and declined until 2015.

Crude Oil Production

The 4.2 Mt/year Bosanski Brod refinery, situated in the Republic of Srpska, has been modernised to produce Euro-5 fuels and MTBE. In 2018, oil refining volumes fell by 23% to 675 kt due to an emergency shutdown in October. The refinery has been idle since then and production has not restarted yet, although a new gas pipeline connecting the refinery to the natural gas transmission system of Croatia was completed in 2021. Oil product imports more than doubled between 2010 (0.7 Mt) and 2020 (1.5 Mt).

Renewable in % Electricity Production

A National Renewable Energy Action Plan (NREAP) was adopted in 2016, reaffirming the 40% target for renewables in final energy consumption in 2020 (38% reached in 2019), 57% for electricity (45% in 2019), 52% for heating and cooling (56%), and 10% for transport (less than 0.5%).

Both entities have adopted their own renewable energy laws (in 2013), their own feed-in tariffs (FiTs) and their own NREAPs (in 2014).

In July 2022, BiH abolished the capacity limits for connecting wind farms and solar power plants to the grid.

CO2 Fuel Combustion/CO2 Emissions

In its updated NDC (2020), Bosnia and Herzegovina aims to cut its GHG emissions by 12.8% by 2030 compared to 2014 (-33.2% compared to 1990), using its domestic resources (unconditional target), and by 17.5% with international support (conditional target) (-36.8% compared to 1990). In the long run, the GHG emissions reduction target for 2050 is 50% (unconditional) and 55% (conditional) compared to 2014 (-61.7% and -65.6%, respectively, compared to 1990).
