Electricity market in Slovakia

Energy sources in Slovakia

Slovakia's energy landscape is marked by a diversified mix of sources. Nuclear power plays a pivotal role, contributing significantly to the country's electricity generation. This reliance on nuclear energy aligns Slovakia with some of the most advanced energy strategies in Europe. The country also utilizes conventional sources such as coal and natural gas, though in lesser proportions compared to nuclear power.

Energy sources in Slovakia

Renewable energy sources, particularly hydroelectric power, are also integral to Slovakia's energy mix. The country's topographical features, including mountainous regions and rivers, provide ideal conditions for hydroelectric generation.

Main source of energy

Nuclear energy is the cornerstone of Slovakia's electricity supply. The country's nuclear power plants, notably Mochovce and Jaslovské Bohunice, are key to its energy independence and stability. These plants not only meet a substantial portion of domestic electricity demand but also underscore Slovakia's commitment to clean and efficient energy production.

This focus on nuclear energy is coupled with a growing emphasis on renewable sources, notably hydroelectric power, which complements nuclear energy in Slovakia's pursuit of a balanced and sustainable energy mix.

Slovakia in the EU electricity market

As a member of the European Union, Slovakia is an active participant in the EU electricity market. Its energy sector is closely integrated with the European grid, enabling cross-border electricity trade. This integration enhances energy security and market efficiency, not just for Slovakia but for the European Union as a whole.

Interconnectivity with neighboring countries, such as Hungary, Czech Republic, and Austria, is a significant aspect of Slovakia's energy strategy. This regional collaboration supports the stability and sustainability of the broader European electricity market.

Future prospects and challenges

Slovakia faces the challenge of modernizing its energy infrastructure and increasing the share of renewables in its energy mix. Aligning with EU directives and targets, particularly in terms of reducing carbon emissions and promoting sustainable energy, is a priority.

The country is poised to expand its renewable energy sector, with investments in solar and wind energy. These steps are crucial for Slovakia's energy transformation, ensuring long-term sustainability and compliance with European environmental standards.


Energy saving tips

Lower the temperature by one degree

Heating is one of the things that consumes the most electricity in a typical home. You save about 5% of the costs for heating for every degree you lower the interior temperature.

Switch to energy-saving light bulbs

Lighting is not the thing that uses the most electricity, but it can still be a good investment to switch to energy-efficient and LED lights. These provide up to 10x more light with the same amount of energy.

Questions and answers about electricity

What is a kWh?

kWh stands for kilowatt-hour, and is a unit that tells how much energy is used in one hour. Kilo means a thousand. So for example, if you have a 1000 watt oven on for one hour, you have used 1 kilowatt-hour. For a light bulb, which may only consume 10 watt, it will take 100 hours (just over 4 days) before you have used 1 kWh.
