Total primary energy supply (TPES) in Slovenia was 6.67 Mtoe in 2014. In the same year, electricity consumption was 13.87 TWh.[1]

Electricity generation is mainly from nuclear power, hydroelectricity (each at 36.5%) and coal (21.6%). Other minor sources include solar PV, biofuels and natural gas. Slovenia has a significant import and export of electricity, with about 16% of the generation as net exports in 2014.[1]

Slovenia is a net energy importer, importing all its oil products (mainly for the transport sector) and natural gas.

Overview[edit]

Slovenia imported 49% of its energy use in 2009.[2]

Electricity[edit]

In 2008, electricity use per million person in Slovenia was 6.1 TWh compared to Spain 6.0 TWh. or Britain 5.7 TWh.[5]

Renewable energy[edit]

In Slovenia's forecast[citation needed], renewables satisfy about 40% of the country’s electricity consumption in 2020[citation needed]. 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.[6]

Climate change[edit]

1990 emissions were 20Mt CO2eq Kyoto protocol target is reduction of 2Mt (-8%).[7]
