Household electricity consumption is increasing in Slovenia. In 2015, it amounted to 3,205 GWh. The share of households equipped with electricity-consuming appliances is increasing as well. These include e.g. dishwashers, clothes dryers, mobile phones, CD players, microwaves, and personal computers. Despite the energy efficiency of some appliances improved, electricity consumption has not decreased, as the number of household appliances continues to increase rapidly, which also contributes to excessive quantities of waste.
