Index of final energy intensity and energy intensity by sector, EU-27
Gross Value Added in Eurostat are not available for all the countries before 1995 (as well as for EU-27 as a whole). Final energy intensities between sectors, and also the total final energy intensity, are not comparable, because the normalising variables are not the same. The indicator serves to highlight the evolution in energy intensity within each sector. The denominators for the sectoral energy intensities are, respectively: GDP for total, transport, population for households, GDP, Gross Value added in industry for industry and Gross Value Added in Services for tertiary and Gross Value Added in Agriculture for Agriculture.
