Figure Efficiency (electricity and heat) production from conventional thermal plants, 1990, 2008
The average energy efficiency of conventional thermal electricity and heat production in the EU-27 improved over the period 1990-2008 by 6.3% to reach 49.8 %in 2008 (48.5 % excluding district heating). The EEA efficiencies exclude Norway (for conventional), and Norway and Switzerland (for public conventional) - their efficiencies are above 100% in either 1990 or 2008 because the electricity consumed for heating is not considered as an input although the heating from electric boilers is considered in total output. Swedish conventional and public conventional efficiencies are above 100% in some years (when including district heating), but not in 1990 or in 2008, so Sweden is included in the charts.

Figure Efficiency (electricity and heat) from public conventional thermal plants, 1990, 2008
For public thermal power plants the average efficiency increased in most countries over the period 1990-2008, resulting in a net efficiency of 49.8% in 2008 (48.2% excluding district heating). The EEA efficiencies exclude Norway (for conventional), and Norway and Switzerland (for public conventional) - their efficiencies are above 100% in either 1990 or 2008 because the electricity consumed for heating is not considered as an input although the heating from electric boilers is considered in total output. Swedish conventional and public conventional efficiencies are above 100% in some years (when including district heating), but not in 1990 or in 2008, so Sweden is included in the charts.

Figure EU-15 CO2 emissions from manufacturing industries and construction 1990-2004 compared with value added and energy consumption and share in total GHG emissions
Left: This graph shows past (1990-2004) and projected (2010) emissions due to energy use from manufacturing and construction industries and compares them with value added and energy use from these sectors Right: This graph represents the share of CO2 emissions from energy use by the manufacturing industries and construction in total GHG emissions in the EU-15, in 2004

Figure Efficiency (electricity and heat) from autoproducers conventional thermal plants, 1990, 2008
For public thermal power plants the average efficiency increased in most countries over the period 1990-2008, resulting in a net efficiency of 49.8% in 2008 (48.2% excluding district heating). Due to inconsistencies in the Eurostat data set Bulgaria, Greece, Romania, Luxembourg and Lithuania are excluded for all years (efficiencies >100%). For Cyprus, Iceland and Malta data on autoproducers is not available, therefore they are also excluded for all years.

Figure Reductions in SO2 emissions from public electricity and heat production in the EU-15
Emissions data for Luxembourg are not available and so this country is not included in the calculation for the European Union
