In 2019, 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 EUR 1.4 million, which is only 17% less than in 2012, when the highest amount in the observed period was reached.


The share of renewable energy sources (RES) in the use of fuels in non-ETS industry amounted to 16,3% in 2019. After four years of decline, the share increased this time, by 3.1% compared to the preceding year. The reason of the increase was an 8% increase in the use of RES, which was greater than a 5% increase in total use of fuels. The largest increase in the use of RES, by 170 TJ, occurred in the wood processing industry. The achieved RES share lagged 4.6 percentage points behind the indicative annual target value.


F-gas emissions from leaks from installations decreased after increasing in 2014-2016 in 2017 and 2018. Although emissions increased in 2019, according to the first data for 2020, emissions will reach the lowest value in the observed period. The gradual 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 and 2019 it was almost zero. In the period 2016–2019 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.
