Additional information

Eurostat, 2016 calculates RES consumption and as part of this process normalises wind and hydro electricity generation, which is part of the RES share numerator. However, the total consumption of electricity included in the denominator is not normalised. In the figure above, non-normalised gross final energy consumption is displayed together with RES shares in which the numerator has been normalised.
