Figure Influence of change in dwelling size on the energy consumption per dwelling (1997–2008)
Unit consumption for households can be expressed in energy consumed per dwelling (toe/dw) or energy consumed per floor area (koe/m2). The floor area per dwelling for EU27 is extrapolated from the weighted average floor area of dwellings of 19 countries (9 EU-15 countries and 10 new members) which represent around 85% of the total EU stock of dwellings; the weighting factor is the stock of dwellings.

Figure Final energy consumption by sector in the EU-27, 1990-2008
Between 1990 and 2008, final energy consumption in transport increased by 33.7 % at an average annual rate of 1.7 %. In 2008, the share of transport in final energy consumption was 32.0%. Household final energy consumption increased by 4.3 % from 2007 to 2008, partially due to a very cold winter across Europe and the refilling of the fuel stock as well as poor energy efficiency improvements. In 2008, the share of household consumption in total final energy consumption was 25.3%. In 2008, the share of service sector in final energy consumption was 11.8%. In 2008, the share of industry in final energy consumption was 27.2%

Indicator Assessment Final energy consumption by sector (CSI 027/ENER 016) - Assessment published Aug 2011
Between 1990 and 2008, the final energy consumption in the EU-27 increased by 9.7 % at an annual average rate of 0.5%. Transport remains the sector with the fastest growing energy consumption (33.7% over the period) followed by services (29.0% over the period). Over the same period, household final energy consumption increased by about 13.0% while final consumption in industry fell by 13.0 %. Between 2007 and 2008, EU-27 final energy consumption increased by 0.3 % mainly due to significant increase in the services (5.2 %) and households (4.3%) sectors. In transport and industry final energy consumption actually decreased between 2007 and 2008 by 0.7% and 3.8% respectively. On average, one person in the EEA counties used 2.2 tonnes of oil equivalent to meet their energy needs in 2008.

Article Power to the people
In modern societies, almost everything consumes energy. It is not only electronic gadgets, household appliances or street lighting that need it. Bringing water to our homes or food products to our supermarkets also require energy. Current consumption and production patterns demand a steady and often increasing energy supply.
