Strategija energetske stabilnosti ter pridobivanje in poraba premoga v letih 1945–1991
STRATEGY OF ENERGY STABILITY AND THE EXTRACTION AND USE OF COAL BETWEEN 1945 AND 1991
The first part of the following discussion focuses on the futile efforts of the Yugoslav and Slovenian governments to ensure the energy stability and self-sufficiency between 1945 and 1991. The nature of the state economic policies in the years under consideration ensured the priority position and production growth of the energy industry. However, due to the lack of investment resources and persistence in the policy of swift and extensive use of national energy resources, the discrepancy between the energy produced and consumed got increasingly pronounced. In 1987 Slovenia started preparing the foundations for the introduction of a newer, more economically viable energy policy, oriented towards the national economy. The second part of the discussion focuses on coal as an inferior-quality energy resource, on which the autarkic Yugoslav energy orientation was based on. Besides the production and consumption trends, the historical analysis also took into account the investment policy, organisational development, and non-viable operation of the Slovenian coal mines. The latter was not compatible with the increasingly relaxed market relations, therefore many coal mines had to shut down.
