More information

The bar chart shows the development of national RES shares for the year 2015 and the average of 2015/2016 (using approximated estimates for 2016) in relation to indicative trajectories from the Renewable Energy Directive for 2015/2016.

Methodology

Based on:
• Renewable energy data from Eurostat, reported by MS under the Energy Statistics Regulation (EC) No 1099/2008 and the Renewable Energy Directive (2009/28/EC) and published in the SHARES - Short Assessment of Renewable Energy Sources tool.
• 2016 approximated estimates for renewable energy use estimated by EEA.

Targets and trajectories based on:
• Part A and B of Annex 1 of Directive 2009/28/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council of 23 April 2009 on the promotion of the use of energy from renewable sources and amending and subsequently repealing Directives 2001/77/EC and 2003/30/EC
