Based on the ratio: energy consumption by end uses divided by the number of permanently occupied dwelling.

European data


Additional information

The energy consumption is always corrected from climate to avoid yearly fluctuations and clmaite differences  bewteen countries.

The number of dwellings for EU-27 as a whole is calculated as a sum of the 27 countries in ODYSSEE.

Extrapolated from 16 EU countries (11 main EU-15 countries + Poland, Czech Rep, Estonia, Hungary and Romania)

The energy consumption for all these countries is aggregated by fuel and end-uses and a share is applied to the total consumption by fuel from Eurostat. This method guarantees the coherence between the aggregate and disaggregated energy consumption.

For instance, for space heating, the consumption of gas is calculated as the total consumption of gas as published by Eurostat for the EU-27 multiplied by the share of space heating in the gas consumption in the sample of 16 countries. The space heating consumption for the EU-27 is then calculated as the sum of the consumption for space heating for each fuel.

A full breakdown of energy consumption by end-use is not available for four EU countries; for Denmark water heating consumption is included in space heating; the value for Luxembourg is not shown as it is not comparable with the other countries (2.5 times the EU average)
