The simulation named "Current power of power plants in Slovenia and CO2 emissions" shows the electricity currently generated in Slovenia and an estimate of the average CO2 emissions in relation to the life cycle. The source of data is the hourly power of individual power plants, published and available on the ENTSO website.

The current power of Slovenian power plants ∑ 1.523 MW

The source of data is the hourly power of individual Slovenian power plants, published and available on the ENTSO website applying to:

  • the entire nuclear power plant,
  • all hydro power plants,
  • renewable energy source power plants (total power of all solar, wind, biomass, and waste power plants is shown),
  • all coal-fired and gas-fired thermal power plants.

Average CO2 emissions  ∑ 320,8 t

CO2 emissions are calculated from the hourly power of power plants and represent only an estimate of the CO2 emission rate for the existing Slovenian power plants in each hour of operation. Coefficients for calculating emissions (specific emissions in g CO2/kWh for each technology) are taken from the publicly published United Nations IPCC report and are also available on Wikipedia. The calculated values consider the entire life cycle of power plants, from construction to decommissioning. For individual technologies or sources, the internationally recognized coefficients are the following:

  • Nuclear power plant: 12 g CO2eq/kWh
  • Hydro power plants: 24 g CO2eq/kWh
  • Solar power plants: 45 g CO2eq/kWh
  • Coal-fired thermal power plants: 820 g CO2eq/kWh
  • Gas-fired thermal power plants: 490 g CO2eq/kWh
  • Wind turbines: 11 g CO2eq/kWh
  • Biomass: 230 g CO2eq/kWh
  • Waste: 230 g CO2eq/kWh

The infographic does not include data on electricity imports, which in 2019, on average, represented between 15 and 20% of all electricity consumed in Slovenia.
