In 2018, the share of renewable energy in gross final energy consumption in Slovenia was 21.1%, i.e. 5.1 percent points higher than in 2005. The trend towards Slovenia’s 2020 target under Directive 2009/28/EC is severely inadequate and is also below the indicative trajectory under the National Renewable Energy Action Plan 2010-2020 (NREAP). An increase in the renewable energy share by 3.9 percent points in 2019 and 2020 will be a very demanding task; for comparison, the share increased by only 0.7 percent points in the period 2010‒2018, i.e. since the NREAP was adopted.


Slovenia is well on its way to compliance with the 2020 non-ETS target. In 2018 Slovenia's non-ETS greenhouse gas emissions were 10% below the 2020 target. Nevertheless, in 2018 the trend was not in line with the target as emissions increased by 1.9%. Greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions decreased in only two sectors: other use and waste; other sectors saw an increase, with the highest increase in the transport sector, while in agriculture GHG emissions remained practically unchanged.
