Total 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 the 2000-2019 period) and remained 25% higher in 2019.

Crude Oil Production
As the country's only refinery ceased operating in 1998, Slovenia imports all its oil products (4.9 Mt in 2019). Italy is its largest supplier (26% in 2019), followed by Russia (20%) and Greece (11%).

Oil Products Consumption
Oil consumption has decline by 2.9%/year between 2011 and 2015 and has remained broadly stable since then (-3.9% to 2.3 Mt in 2019).
Graph: OIL CONSUMPTION (Mt)
More than 3/4 of the oil products are consumed by the transport sector, 12% by the residential tertiary sector and 12% by industry (including non-energy uses) (2019).

Natural Gas Consumption
Natural gas consumption has been stable at around 0.9 bcm since 2017. Previously, it grew by 2.4%/year over 2000-2005, before declining by 4.3%/year until 2014 and recovering by 5.7%/year until 2017, due to a higher demand from industry and from the power sector.
Graph: NATURAL GAS CONSUMPTION (bcm)
About 60% of gas consumption is intended for industry (64% in 2019) and 15% is used to supply power plants. Households and services account for 16% of the demand (2019).

Lignite consumption, which has been rather stable at around 3.7 Mt between 2014 and 2018, dipped by 5.8% to 3.5 Mt in 2019. Previously, it had slightly 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 (97% in 2019).

Electricity consumption remained stable at 13.8 TWh in 2019, after a 2.1%/year growth over 2009-2018. Before the economic crisis, electricity consumption grew quite rapidly (+3.3%/year between 2000 and 2007).
Graph: ELECTRICITY CONSUMPTION (TWh)
Industry is the largest electricity consuming sector, with 51% in 2019, followed by households (25%) and services (21%).

Renewable in % Electricity Production
According to the European Directive on renewables, the national target is to raise the share of renewables in final consumption to 25% in 2020 (21% achieved in 2018), of which more than 39% for electricity (32% in 2018) 31% for heating (32% in 2018) and 10.5% in transport (5.5% in 2018).
The NECP (2020) raised the target on renewables to at least 27% of final consumption by 2030, including at least 2/3 of renewable energy use in buildings, 30% in industry, 43% in power generation, 41% for heating and cooling and 21% in transport.

CO2 Fuel Combustion/CO2 Emissions
Slovenia reduced its GHG emissions by 6.2% over the 1986-2012 period, missing its Kyoto target to cut them by 8% to 18.7 Mt by 2012. Slovenia's GHG emissions have slightly increased since 2014 to 17.6 Mt in 2019; they had grown by 25% between 1991 and 2008 before falling by 23% until 2014.
