Total Energy Consumption

Per capita consumption is 3.1 toe (less than 2% higher than the EU average in 2021). Electricity consumption per capita exceeds 6 400 kWh (12% above the EU average).

Graph: CONSUMPTION TRENDS BY ENERGY SOURCE (Mtoe)

The country's total consumption recovered by 2% in 2021 to 6.6 Mtoe after a decline between 2017 and 2020 (-2.8%/year). Previously, it had contracted by 2.4%/year between 2008 and 2015, but recovered until 2017 (+3.3%/year).

Crude Oil Production

As the country's only refinery ceased operating in 1998, Slovenia imports all its oil products (4 Mt in 2020). Italy is its largest supplier (31% in 2020), followed, Austria (14%) and Russia (13%). Preliminary data for 2021 anticipate a decrease in oil products import for 2021 (-4%) as Greece would move to the number one supplier.

Oil Products Consumption

After a relative stability between 2015 and 2019, oil consumption registered an important drop in 2020 due to transport restriction (-19% in transport) but recovered in 2021 to 2.1 Mt, still 8% behind 2019 levels. Oil consumption had declined by 2.9%/year between 2011 and 2015.

Graph: OIL CONSUMPTION (Mt)

More than 3/4 of the oil products are consumed by the transport sector, 11% by the residential tertiary sector and 11% by industry (including non-energy uses) (2021).

Natural Gas Consumption

Natural gas consumption grew by 5% in 2021 to 0.95 bcm, it had been stable at around 0.9 bcm since 2017. Previously, it had declined by 4.3%/year over 2005- 2014 and recovered until 2017 (+5.7%/year), due to a higher demand from industry and from the power sector.

Graph: NATURAL GAS CONSUMPTION (bcm)

in 2021, 62% of gas consumption was intended for industry and 15% was used for power generation. Households and services account for 18% of the demand.

Coal Consumption

Following the downward trend since 2016, lignite consumption dipped by 9% to 3.2 Mt in 2021. Previously, it had eroded between 2002 and 2012 (by 1.2%/year), before collapsing in 2013 and 2014 (-15%/year) due to much lower demand from the power sector, the main consumer of lignite (99% in 2021).

Power Consumption

Electricity consumption rebounded by 4% to 13.6 TWh in 2021 after a 5% decrease in 2020; it grew before by 2%/year growth over 2009-2018.

Graph: ELECTRICITY CONSUMPTION (TWh)

Industry is the largest electricity consuming sector, with 45% in 2021, followed by households (28%) and services (24%).

Renewable in % Electricity Production

Slovenia fell short to its objective of 25% of renewables in final consumption in 2020; this share only reached 24.1% (35% for electricity vs a target of 39%, 32% for heating vs 30.8% and 10.9% for transport vs 10.5%). The difference was compensated through the European Union's statistical transfer mechanism, winning a bid from Czechia for €2m.

The NECP (2020) raised the target on renewables to 27% of final consumption in 2030, including 43% for power, 41% for heating and cooling, and 21% for transport.

CO2 Fuel Combustion/CO2 Emissions

The NECP set a reduction target for GHG emissions of 36% in 2030 compared to 2005, including a 43% cut in emissions covered by the EU ETS and a 30% cut outside the EU ETS (-43% for industry, -34% for the energy sector outside the scheme, -1% for agriculture but up to +12% for transport). GHG emissions in buildings should be cut by at least 70% by 2030 (compared to 2005).
