Figure Efficiency of conventional thermal electricity and heat production
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). Output from conventional thermal power stations consists of gross electricity generation and also of any heat sold to third parties (combined heat and power plants) by conventional thermal public utility power stations as well as autoproducer thermal power stations.

Figure Electricity intensity and electricity consumption per employee in services
Unit consumption per employee is the ratio between the energy consumption (total or electricity) and the number of employees (salaries employed in full time). The energy (or electricity) intensity is the ratio between the energy (electricity) consumption and the value added expressed in constant Euros (M€2000)

Figure Estimated impact of different factors on the reduction of CO2, SO2 and NOX emissions from public heat and electricity generation in the EU-25, 1990-2003
The technique used to derive the graphs is based on the multiplicative 'IPAT' and 'Kaya' identities, which is a frequently used approach for portraying the primary driving forces of emissions

Figure Decomposition analysis of CO2 emission trends from public electricity and heat production in the EU, 1990–2008
Each bar shows the contribution of a single driver on GHG emission trends during a determined period. The thick short black lines indicate the combined effect of all emission drivers, i.e. the overall GHG emission trend during the period considered.

Figure Average annual growth rate in electricity consumption by sector, 1990-2008 and 2007-2008, EU-27
Since 1990, in the EU-27 the electricity consumption increased in the service sector (including agriculture) at an annual growth rate of 2.6 %. In total, the electricity consumption increased by 59.2 % between 1990 and 2008. The main reasons for increased electricity consumption in the service sector were the sustained growth of this sector throughout the EU, the increased use of electrical appliances (such as air conditioning, lighting or IT equipment) and the penetration of new electrical devices

Figure Share of electricity production by fuel type in 2009
Share of electricity production by fuel type in 2009 ‘Other fuels’ include electricity produced from power plants not accounted for elsewhere such as those fuelled by certain types of industrial wastes. It also includes the electricity generated as a result of pumping in hydro-power stations.
