In 2020, the amount of incentives for the implementation of measures related to energy efficiency (EE) and renewable energy sources (RES) in non-ETS industry amounted to almost EUR 5.9 million, which is four times more than the previous year and by far the highest in the observed period.


The share of renewable energy sources (RES) in the use of fuels in non-ETS industry amounted to 17.6% in 2020 and lagged 4.4 percentage points behind the annual target value. The 2020 target was thus not achieved. Compared to the previous year, the share however again increased, this time by 7.6%. The reason of the increase was a 6% increase in the use of RES, as well as a 2% decrease in the total use of fuels which was mainly caused by the measures for preventing the spread of SARS-CoV-2 virus. The largest increase in the use of RES, by 109 TJ, occurred in the wood processing industry.


F-gas emissions from leaks from installations decreased after increasing in 2014-2016 in 2017 and 2018. Emissions increased again in 2019, but in 2020 a reduction was achieved again, bringing emissions to their lowest level in the observed period. The reduction of emissions from 2016 onwards indicates the successful implementation of measures in this area, which is reflected in the reduction of the amount of supplements for cooling systems and the change in the structure of substances in the direction of substances with lower greenhouse potential.


The amount of landfilled biodegradable waste decreased rapidly up to 2013, after which the reduction stopped. In 2016 and 2017, as a result of upgrading the infrastructure for mechanical biological treatment of waste before disposal, the amount decreased significantly again, and in 2018‒2020 it was almost zero. In the period 2016–2020 the amount was significantly lower than the target in 2020. The main measures to achieve this reduction are separate collection of waste and mechanical biological treatment of mixed municipal waste.
