Slovenia met 55% of own energy needs in 2020
Slovenia met 55% of its energy needs from own sources of energy in 2020, reducing its energy dependence by 7 percentage points compared with the previous year, mainly due to reduced import of petroleum products and increased domestic energy production, the country's statistics agency (SURS) said on Monday.
Total amount of domestic energy sources was 3.7 million ton of oil equivalent (toe) (155 PJ= petajoule), which is by 5% more than in 2019, the statistics agency said. In the structure of supplied energy in 2020, petroleum products prevailed with 29%, followed by nuclear energy with 25%, renewable energy sources (including hydropower) with 19%, coal with 16% and natural gas with 11%.
