In the years 2016 and 2017 the decreasing trend of the specific CO2 emissions of new vehicles halted, and in 2018 even recorded slight growth, thus the achievement of the target is seriously jeopardized. The positive aspect is that the large difference between factory data on energy use and CO2 emissions and actual data decreased in 2018 with the introduction of a new measuring cycle. The average CO2 emissions of all vehicles declined sharply in 2017 but in 2018 recorded growth.


The share of RES in transport increased for the second year in a row and in 2018 amounted to 5.5%. That was still lower than the annual target in the National Renewable Energy Action Plan 2010−2020 (NREAP) and represents a delay on the path to the 2020 target under Directive 2009/28/EU. In order to achieve the 2020 target, consistent implementation of the measures adopted in the NREAP will be required.


In 2018, the number of total passenger kilometres in public passenger transport decreased and with that a long positive growth trend ended. Passenger kilometres increased in rail transport, but decreased in road public passenger transport.


In accordance with the set targets, it is necessary to ensure faster growth of rail freight transport in comparison to road freight transport. This was achieved in the observed period between 2011−2018. The share of rail freight transport in total freight transport with goods loaded or unloaded in Slovenia continues to be above the projection values of the indicator, but in 2018 it fell under the indicative target for 2020. The number of tonne-kilometres in road transport increased by 18.4% in the period 2011−2018.


The frequency of agricultural drought in Slovenia has been increasing in recent decades. In the last twenty years, we have recorded 6 droughts that affected Slovenia at the scale of a natural disaster. Drought is occurring with increasing intensity and in areas and seasons where there have been no problems in the past. An additional risk for agricultural drought are rapidly developing droughts in summer ("flash droughts"), which occur especially during heat waves. Projections show that trend of increasing frequency and intensity of agricultural drought will continue in the future.pp
