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, final users have at their disposal only around 73% of primary energy. In 2015 the rate reached its highest level. The efficiency of electricity and heat production is largely influenced by this share in far.

In 2014, an important change in the structure of electricity production occurred. For the first time since 1994, most electricity was no longer produced from nuclear energy but from RES, while the third place was taken by solid fuels. The share of production from gaseous fuels was small. The share of electricity production from domestic sources was 93%, which was above the target share set in the Resolution on the National Energy Programme. Total production of electricity in Slovenia exceeded gross consumption by 21%.

It is estimated that in Slovenia, more than EUR 324 million of subsidies were allocated in the energy sector in 2014 (EUR 212 million expressed in constant prices with 2000 as a reference year). In 2014, subsidies for energy generation from fossil fuels, which have the most harmful impact on the environment, and for the use of fossil fuels, represented 37% of all subsidies in the energy sector, while in 2005, the share of such subsidies was 74%.

Neutral

The limit value for environmental noise for playgrounds (55dB(A)) determined by the WHO was exceeded at the most exposed facade at 12 primary schools. However none of 34 kindergartens and 22 primary schools was exposed to excess noise limit at all four facades. There were 4,097 pupils in 12 schools and 2,909 children in 24 kindergartens where the high noise levels at most exposed facades were determined in the school year 2013/2014.

Most of industrial energy is consumed in the production of metals. In the period 2008-2012, the efficiency of energy use has increased, while the trends in individual sectors are very different and diverse.
