Environmental indicators in Slovenia


Environmental indicators are based on graphs, maps and assessments and as such present environmental trends in Slovenia. The indicators represent one of the four pillars of our environmental reporting, and are prepared in accordance with the Environmental Protection Act. The Environmental Indicators in Slovenia website enables users to browse among 180 indicators. They are based on numerical data and they indicate the state, characteristics and trends of environmental development in Slovenia. They are prepared using a systematic approach based on data and monitoring, as shown in the information pyramid.

Energy prices increased in the period 2008–2014. In the same period, the highest increase was recorded in the price of electricity (37%) for households, followed by the price of petrol NMB 95 (34%), the price of heating oil (32%), natural gas for industry (25%), diesel fuel D2 (24%), natural gas for households (21%), while the lowest increase (less than 4%) was recorded in the price of electricity for industry.

By 2017, the implementation of energy efficiency (EE) and renewable energy sources (RES) measures in the public sector resulted in a cumulative energy savings of 128.2 GWh, and the cumulative CO2 emissions reduction was 29 kt. Both indicators are now lagging behind the indicative annual target values already by 35 and 30 %. Given the foreseen implementation of the measures in 2018, we expect that the values of both indicators will continue to increase in the future.

Neutral

In 2017, the leverage of incentives in the public sector amounted to 40 euro cents of subsidy for 1 euro of investment, which is 2 euro cents better than the indicative annual target value. The leverage improved significantly in the period 2012−2015.

Good

The objective of the indicator was and still is to provide a faster growth of rail freight transport in comparison to road freight transport. In observed period 2011−2017 that was achieved. The share of rail freight transport in total freight transport with at least one point in Slovenia continues to be above the projection values of the indicator and is also above the indicative target for 2020. The number of tonne kilometers in road transport increased by 12,4 % in the observed period 2011−2017.

Bad

In 2017, the share of RES in transport increased and amounted to 2.7 %. This was still significantly lower than the annual target in the National Renewable Energy Action Plan 2010−2020 (NREAP) and represents a delay on the way towards the 2020 target under Directive 2009/28/EU. To achieve the 2020 objective a consistent implementation of the adopted RES measures will be required.

Neutral

In the last two years the specific emissions lowering trend of new vehicles has stopped and the objective achivement could be easily compromised. Because of the large difference between factory data on energy use and emissions and actual data the estimation of the indicator is doubtful. The average emissions of all vehicles declined sharply in 2017 but at least a similar or a greater reduction in future years will be needed in order to achieve the goal. In order to achieve both objectives, the implementation of measures in this area will have to be strengthened.
