Operations' environmental impact

Reducing emissions

Currently, 80 % of energy worldwide is produced from fossil fuels. Over time, fossil fuel reserves will run out. In addition, fossil fuels combustion negatively impacts the environment, in particular by releasing sulphur oxides, nitrogen oxides, as well as greenhouse gas CO2 which is responsible for global warming and global climate change.

Slovenské elektrárne produces amounts of electricity in nuclear power plants and hydro power plants. That is why our company has a very low CO2 emissions calculated on the total electricity supplied.
