As it can be seen from the following figure, the share of renewable energies in 2017 was 13.1% of the national primary energy consumption. In 2018 the share increrased slightly to 13.8%. Among renewable energies, biomass is the most important energy source - biomass contributed to about 60% of renewable energy production in 2017 and 2018.
Bioenergy contributes to the energy system in the sectors of heat (e.g. burning firewood in wood-burning stoves), electricity (e.g. from fermentation in biogas plants) and transport (e.g. bio-methane based on bio-waste for collection vehicles). For illustration purposes, the contribution of biomass to the energy system can be compared as follows:
When considering the final energy consumption in the transport sector, it should be noted that a significant part of the biogenic fuel or raw materials is imported.
