Topics:
  • Final energy consumption in the 28 EU Member States was 5.7 % lower in 2017 than in 2005, mainly due to reductions in the industry sector. Preliminary data suggests that this trend continues in 2018.
  • Still, final energy consumption increased for all fuel types in the EU between 2016 and 2017.
  • In 2017, the EU's final energy consumption rose for the first time in 7 years above the indicative trajectory set by the EEA to monitor progress towards the 2020 energy efficiency targets. A trend which is expected to continue also in 2018. Therefore, achieving the 2020 targets is increasingly uncertain.
