CO2 emissions

Greenhouse gas (CO2) emissions are one of the most important indicators from the point of view of air protection. Specific CO2 emissions, related to the total electricity supplied to the Slovak electricity system, reached the historically lowest level in 2019 thanks to a balanced energy mix with a high share of electricity production from nuclear and hydro power plants and lower supply from thermal power plants burning fossil fuels, while decreasing by more than 20% year on year.
