Energy sources in Slovenia

Slovenia's energy sector is marked by a balanced mix of sources. The country's electricity generation is largely reliant on nuclear power and hydroelectricity. Nuclear energy, primarily from the Krško Nuclear Power Plant, plays a crucial role in meeting domestic electricity needs while ensuring energy stability. Additionally, Slovenia's diverse landscape, featuring rivers and mountainous regions, makes hydroelectric power a significant contributor to its energy mix.

Energy sources in Slovenia

Alongside these primary sources, Slovenia is also exploring renewable energy options, including wind and solar power, to further diversify its energy portfolio and reduce reliance on fossil fuels.

Main source of energy

Nuclear energy stands as a primary source of electricity in Slovenia. The Krško Nuclear Power Plant, jointly owned with Croatia, is a major element in Slovenia's energy infrastructure, providing a significant portion of the country's electricity. This reliance on nuclear power underscores Slovenia's commitment to a low-carbon energy future.

Hydroelectric power also plays an essential role, leveraging the country's natural water resources. This blend of nuclear and hydroelectric power forms the backbone of Slovenia's energy strategy, aligning with its environmental goals and energy needs.

Questions and answers about electricity

What is spot price?

Most electricity companies in Europe buy electricity on a common market place, such as Nord Pool. All power plants that produce electricity and electricity companies that supply electricity to homes and businesses meet there. Based on supply and demand, prices are set for each hour and each area, one day in advance. Some countries, such as Norway, are divided into several different price areas, each of which has its own spot price.
