OECD Inventory of Support Measures for Fossil Fuels: Country Notes

image of OECD Inventory of Support Measures for Fossil Fuels: Country Notes

This new web format for Country Notes on Fossil Fuel Support provides interactive on-line access to the latest data from the OECD Inventory of Support Measures for Fossil Fuels by country – identifying and estimating the value of support arising from policies that encourage the production or consumption of fossil fuels. The web version allows users to download, share and play with the data. Interactive graphics enable data visualisation, in national currency, by beneficiary and by energy product. These Country Notes provide, for each of the 50 economies covered in the Inventory, a snapshot of energy market structure, the current state of energy prices and taxes, and recent developments and trends in fossil fuel support. Data and country notes for the EU Eastern Partnership (EaP) countries have been collected and prepared as part of the GREEN Action Task Force.



Slovenia is a country not particularly endowed in fossil fuels resources. It imports virtually all of its oil natural gas, the latter of which is purchased through long-term contracts and trading hubs in Austria and Italy. Indigenous energy sources – in the form of domestic coal, nuclear power, hydropower, and renewables —satisfy slightly more than half of Slovenia’s energy needs. In 2021, around 24% of all electricity in Slovenia was generated from domestic lignite, currently produced in the Velenje mine. Domestic production of lignite met about 80% of the demand for solid fuels in the same year. This coal is of very low calorific value (with an approximate calorific value of 12 MJ/kg) and contains high levels of sulphur and ash.
