The Energy Efficiency Directive 2012/27/EU (EED) and amending directive 2018/2002/EU establish a common framework for the promotion of energy efficiency within the Union in order to ensure the achievement of the Union’s target of 20 % reduction in energy consumption by 2020 and 32 % by 2030, 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. Since early access to the most recent information on energy consumption is relevant for all stakeholders, the EEA and its European Topic Centre for Climate Change Mitigation and Energy (ETC/CME) 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 compatible with the scope of the energy efficiency targets for 2020 and 2030, and they correspond to the indicator codes PEC2020-2030 and FEC2020-2030 from Eurostat. The current data set concerns the EEA 2020 proxies on primary and final energy consumption (PEC2020-2030; FEC2020-2030).

Additional information

This current data set concerns the EEA 2020 proxies on primary and final energy consumption (new Eurostat indicator codes PEC2020-2030 and FEC2020-2030). The energy consumption proxy data for 2020 are presented per Member State and for the EU as a whole, as primary and final energy consumption expressed in Million tonnes of oil equivalent (Mtoe). The EEA 2020 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 do not substitute data that countries officially report to Eurostat and to the European commission in the context of their legal obligations.
