In Slovenia's forecast renewables meet ca 40% of the country’s electricity consumption in 2020. Slovenia is the EU country with the smallest forecast penetration of wind power in 2020: 1.3% of electricity consumption, while the Irish action plan shows wind meeting over 36% of the country’s electricity demand. Slovenia has intention to cover its EU renewable energy obligations 6.1TWh (2020) mainly with hydro power 5.1 TWh and biomass 0.7 TWh. According to EWEA’s calculations by 2020 wind could cover 6% - 9% of electricity demand. The newly adopted feed-in tariff limiting support to projects of 5 MW and under may be hindering perspectives for wind power development.
