Slovenia More Dependent on Imported Energy

Slovenia More Dependent on Imported Energy

Slovenia's dependence on imported energy increased by 3 percentage points to 51% last year, show figures released by the Statistics Office on Wednesday.

Slovenia's primary energy production fell by 7% last year to 3.5 million tonnes of oil equivalent, chiefly due to a 11% decrease in the output of Slovenia's sole nuclear power plant and a 9% fall in coal production.

Out of the total of 15,715 GWh gross of electricity generated in Slovenia last year, thermal power plants produced 38%, the Krško Nuclear Power Plant 35% and hydro power plants 26%. Solar plants contributed only a little over 1%.
