Figure D source code Trends in energy efficiency and ownership rates of household appliances and electricity consumption in households, EU-27
The figure shows trends in energy efficiency of appliances (dishwasher, TV, washing machine) compared to ownership numbers of these appliances and total electricity consumption for lighting and appliances per dwelling. The figure illustrates that increasing ownership of appliances is more than offsetting gains from energy efficiency improvements in individual appliances.

Figure Average annual growth rates for passenger transport, EU-27, 1995-2007
The Figure is showing average annual growth rates of different means of transport within the EU-27 in the period between 1995-2007. (Actual yearly growth rates are of course differing from the averages used in Fig 6.1.) The values for Air and Sea travel only include domestic and Intra-EU-27 transport. Most numbers are based on estimates and data for Air and Sea are provisional estimates.

Figure Principle areas of irrigation
The Global Map of Irrigation Areas was developed by combining sub-national irrigation statistics with geospatial information on the position and extent of irrigation schemes to compute the fraction of 5 arc minute cells that was equipped for irrigation, which is called irrigation density.

Indicator Assessment Nutrients in freshwater (CSI 020) - Assessment DRAFT created Sep 2013
Average nitrate concentrations in European groundwaters increased from 1992 to 1998, but have declined again since 2005. On average, the nitrate concentration in European rivers declined by 0.5 mg N/l over the period 1992 to 2011 (20% relative to the average concentration), reflecting the effect of measures to reduce agricultural inputs of nitrate as well as improvement in wastewater treatment. Average orthophosphate concentrations in European rivers have decreased markedly over the last two decades- On average concentrations declined by 0.08 mg P/l between 1992 and 2011 (72% decrease relative to the average concentration). Also average lake phosphorus concentration decreased over the period 1992-2011 (on average by 0.008 mg P/l, or 27% relative to the average concentration). The decrease in phosphorus concentrations reflects both improvement in wastewater treatment and reduction in phosphorus in detergents. Overall, reductions in the levels of freshwater nutrients over the last two decades primarily reflect improvements in wastewater treatment. Emissions from agriculture continue to be a significant source.

Indicator Assessment Bathing water quality (CSI 022) - Assessment published Mar 2012
The quality of water at designated bathing waters in Europe (coastal and inland) has improved significantly since 1990. Compliance with mandatory values in EU coastal bathing waters increased from just below 80 % in 1990 to 92.1 % in 2010. Compliance with guide values likewise rose from over 68 % to 79.5 % in 2010. Compliance with mandatory values in EU inland bathing waters increased from 52 % in 1990 to 90.2 % in 2010. Similarly, the rate of compliance with guide values moved from 36.4 % in 1990 to 60.5 % in 2010.

Figure IIn-shore and off-shore Natura 2000 sites, 2011
A map showing the distribution of marine Natura 2000 sites. The map distinguishes between those marine sites within 12 nautical miles (termed ‘Inshore sites’) and those beyond 12 nautical miles (termed ‘Offshore sites’). It is based upon the ‘end 2011’ Natura 2000 dataset.
