Indicator Assessment Final energy consumption by sector (CSI 027/ENER 016) - Assessment published Sep 2010
Between 1990 and 2007, the final energy consumption in the EU-27 increased by 8.4 % at an annual average rate of 0.5%. Transport remains the sector with the fastest growing energy consumption (34.4% over the period) followed by services (21.1% over the period). Over the same period, the household final energy consumption increased by about 8.0% while the final consumption in industry fell by 11.7 %. Between 2006 and 2007, the EU-27 final energy consumption decreased by 1.5 % mainly due to significant reductions in the households (6.6 %) and services (4.6%) sectors. In transport and industry final energy consumption actually increased between 2006 and 2007 by 1.6% and 1% respectively. On average, one person in the EU-27 used 2.3 tonnes of oil equivalent to meet the energy needs in 2007.

File Clean air for Europe
Air pollution is a growing concern in the area of public health. Scientific research shows that air pollutants are behind a higher number of diseases such as respiratory allergies, asthma and inflammatory conditions. It is the most vulnerable segments of populations, the elderly and children, who are the first to be affected by this phenomenon. In May 2001, the European Commission launched its " Clean Air for Europe " (CAFE) programme. This is a three-year programme intended to investigate all sources of air pollution and provide solutions to reduce them.

Figure Energy efficiency index (ODEX) in the EU-27
Energy efficiency index of industry (ODEX) is a weighted average of the specific consumption index of 10 manufacturing branches; the weight being the share of each branch in the sum of the energy consumption of these branches in year t and the sum of the implied energy consumption from each underlying industrial branches in year t (based on the unit consumption of the sub-sector with a moving reference year).

Data Plant-by-plant emissions of SO2, NOx and dust and energy input of large combustion plants covered by Directive 2001/80/EC
The Directive on the limitation of emissions of certain pollutants into the air from large combustion plants (LCP Directive, 2001/80/EC) applies to combustion plants with a rated thermal input equal to or greater than 50 MW, irrespective of the type of fuel used (solid, liquid or gaseous)

Highlight Households and industry responsible for half of EU greenhouse gas emissions from fossil fuels
Households and industry in the EU each cause approximately a quarter of energy-related greenhouse gas emissions, according to a new report by the European Environment Agency (EEA). The two sectors were largely responsible for the emissions increase in 2010, together leading to an additional 90 million tonnes of CO2 equivalent compared to 2009.

Highlight Fewer summer ozone peaks in 2012, but levels still harmful
Ozone pollution still exceeded target levels in Europe during summer 2012, but the number of exceedances of the alert threshold was lower than in any year since monitoring started in 1997. However, almost all EU Member States failed to keep levels of the pollutant within targets set to protect human health.
