The largest consumer was the transport sector
In 2017, final energy consumption in Slovenia was 206,000 TJ. Despite the decline in the consumption of petroleum products in transport, consumption in this sector still represented the highest share (38%). The second highest share in final energy consumption was that of manufacturing and construction with 27%, followed by households with 23% and by other use and agriculture with 12%.
Petroleum products represented the highest share in final energy consumption
In Slovenia almost half of final energy in 2017 was consumed in the form of petroleum products, namely 45%. The second highest share in final energy consumption in 2017 belonged to electricity (23%), followed by renewables (14%), natural gas (12%), heat (4%) and solid fuels (1%).
In 2017 final energy consumption in households 1,100 TJ lower than in the previous year
In 2017, final energy consumption in households in Slovenia was 46,900 TJ, which is 2% less than in the previous year. Energy consumption for space heating decreased by about 4% and for cooking by 0.2%. Final consumption of energy for space cooling increased by almost 2% and for water heating by 0.1%.
Most of the final energy in households was consumed for space heating
In 2017 most of the final energy in households was consumed for space heating (29,832 TJ or 64%); for water heating 16%, for lighting and electrical appliances also 16%, for cooking 4% and for space cooling less than 1% of all energy was consumed.
Consumption of wood fuels dominated in households with 41%; consumption of extra light heating oil decreased the most
Among energy sources consumed in households wood fuels dominated with 41%, followed by consumptions of electricity with 26%, natural gas with almost 11%, extra light heating oil with 9%, district heating with 7%, ambient heat and liquefied petroleum gas both 3% and solar energy with 1%. Compared to the previous year, among energy sources the consumption of extra light heating oil decreased the most (by 8%), while the consumption of energy from ambient heat increased the most (by 6%).
