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.

In Slovenia, 143 siteswere certified in 2022. In 2021, 3,165 sites were certified in the European Union, and 3,165 around the world.

Since 2012, the installed capacity of the systems for the production of electricity from RES has increased by 47.3%. More than half of this increase, 24.7%, was achieved in the last three years. The indicator is currently on a trajectory of achieving the indicative targets until 2030 set in the National Energy and Climate Plan (NECP).

In 2021, greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from sources according to the Regulation (EU) 2023/857 increased by 5.5% compared to the previous year and were lower than the annual target by 8.6%, which means that the target was achieved. GHG emissions decreased in the waste and electricity and heat production sectors, and the most in the consumer sector. In all other sectors emissions increased, with the exception of the agriculture, where they remained at the 2020 level.

According to the first estimates for 2022, GHG emissions per unit of electricity produced amounted to 208 gCO2/kWh. In the period 1992–2022, the intensity of GHG emissions decreased by 52.8%. Compared to the EU-27 average, it was in Slovenia in 2022 17.1% lower.

The vast majority of registered personal vehicles are still powered by conventional fuels (petrol and diesel). The proportion of vehicles with alternative propulsion systems has doubled from 2019 to 2022, yet it remains very small.

Neutral

Although a quarter of the newly registered personal cars in Slovenia are electric or hybrid, their share among all personal vehicles is only around 3%. This is due to the fact that households rarely decide to purchase new cars, resulting in a high average age of cars over 10 years, and it will take a long time for our vehicle fleet to become less energy-intensive. Slovenia ranks in the bottom quarter of European countries by the share of first registrations of new personal electric vehicles.
