In 2016 and 2017, the trend of reducing specific emissions of new vehicles has stopped, and in 2018 and 2019 they have even increased. After a 10% reduction in 2020, the specific emissions of new vehicles remained almost unchanged in 2021, falling short of the target set for that year. In 2022, the specific emissions of new vehicles decreased again, by 6%.

In 2021, for the first time since 2016, the average emissions of all vehicles increased slightly in comparison to the previous year. Target values have not been achieved.


In 2021, the share of RES in transport increased for the fifth consecutive year and amounted to 10.6%. With this, it was 0.3 percentage points behind the non-binding 2021 target from the National Energy and Climate Plan (NECP) for 2021.


After the increase in number of total passenger kilometres in public passenger transport in 2019, in 2020 the number of total passenger kilometres in PPT sharply decreased. Passenger kilometres decreased to the lowest level in the observed period in both rail transport and road public passenger transport. The main reason for such decrease in passenger kilometres is the large reduction in transport activity as a result of the measures taken during the COVID-19 epidemic.


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 not achieved in 2020. The share of rail freight transport in total freight transport with goods loaded or unloaded in Slovenia remained under the projection value of the indicator for 2020. The number of tonne-kilometres in road transport increased by 19,2% in the period 2011−2020. In the same period, the number of tonne-kilometres achieved in rail transport increased by only 13%.
