The total emissions in the EU-ETS sector after 2016 recorded annual growth in 2017 as well. After 6% growth in 2016, total emissions in the year 2017 increased by 1.4% compared to the year before. Growth is the result of higher emissions from industrial processes and manufacturing. At EU-28 level, this sector has adopted a legally binding target of reducing GHG emissions by 21% until 2020 compared to the 2005 level. That is an EU-28 common goal and is not further differentiated across Member States. Slovenia does not have a specific target for this sector.


In 2017, 63% of all municipalities with district heating (DH) had energy efficient DH systems, i.e. systems that meet one of the criteria defined in the Article 322 of the Energy Law. Compared to the previous year, the share decreased by 4 percentage points and was lagging behind the 2020 target by 37 percentage points. In energy efficient systems, 77% of all heat from DH systems was produced in comparison to 84% the year before. In the fuel consumption structure, the dominance of coal and natural gas increased from 81 to 84%.


From 2010, normalized electricity generation from RES increased by 11% and from 2005 by 19%. In order to achieve an indicative target in 2020, an increase is required for more than it was achieved throughout the whole 2005–2017 period. An indicative target for the production of electricity from renewable energy sources is set by AN RES for the period 2010–2020.


According to the Ministry of Infrastructure (MOI) data, a total of 135 self-sufficiency devices were connected in 2016 and 720 in 2017. In 2016, 130 solar power plants and 5 hydroelectric power plants were connected with a total nominal power of just under 1,1 MW. In 2017 718 solar power plants and 2 hydropower plants were connected, and the total nominal power of connected devices was close to 6.5 MW.
