The Energy Efficiency Directive 2012/27/EU (EED) establishes a common framework for the promotion of energy efficiency within the Union in order to ensure the achievement of the Union’s 2020 20 % headline target on energy efficiency and to pave the way for further energy efficiency improvements beyond that date. It also calls on Member States to set their own indicative national energy efficiency targets, which can be based on primary or final energy consumption, primary or final energy savings, or energy intensity. Since early access to the most recent information on energy consumption is relevant for all stakeholders, the EEA and its European Topic Centre for Air Pollution and Climate Change Mitigation (ETC/ACM) produce each year a set of early estimates concerning the consumption of primary and final energy in the previous year, across the EU as a whole and in each Member State. These estimates are defined in accordance with the methodology that underpinned the energy efficiency targets for 2020 and 2030, and they correspond to the new indicator codes PEC2020-2030 and FEC2020-2030 from Eurostat. The current data set concerns the EEA 2018 proxies on primary and final energy consumption (PEC2020-2030; FEC2020-2030).

EEA 2018 proxies on primary and final energy consumption

Metadata

Additional information

This current data set concerns the EEA 2018 proxies on primary and final energy consumption (new Eurostat indicator codes PEC2020-2030 and FEC2020-2030). The energy consumption proxy data for 2018 are presented per MS and for the EU as a whole, as primary and final energy consumption expressed in Million tonnes of oil equivalent (Mtoe). The EEA 2018 proxies on primary and final energy consumption formed the basis of a specific EEA country consultation. Where national data were provided during the consultation, they have been used. Nevertheless, the early estimated values are not a substitute for data that countries officially report to Eurostat and to the European commission in the context of their legal obligations.
