Index Commentary

Croatia’s overall Index ranking remains unchanged and it continues to balance the three sides of the energy trilemma relatively well, although energy security lags slightly behind. The country’s energy security ranking declines, despite small improvements in further diversifying its electricity fuel mix, lowered transmission and distribution losses, and increased oil stocks. Croatia improves its ranking in the energy equity dimension because of lower household expenditure on electricity. The environmental impact of the country’s economy continues to be well-managed, and CO2 emissions from electricity generation decline. Contextual performance remains largely unchanged, with some deterioration among the political strength indicators. Economic strength remains Croatia’s weakest contextual dimension, although an increased availability of domestic credit to the private sector has a positive impact on the country’s economic stability.
