Goal 7: 4. Main Eurostat Indicators

Key trends in “Affordable and clean Energy” in Europe show the following evidence (Eurostat Report, pp. 145 and ss):

  • Due to recent increases in energy consumption, the EU is not on track to meet its 2020 energy efficiency target;
  • EU citizens on average consumed less energy at home in 2017 than they did in 2002, but further reductions are needed;
  • Both energy productivity and greenhouse gas intensity of energy consumption have improved almost continuously since 2000;
  • A rising share of renewables in electricity, heating, cooling and transport has put the EU on track to meeting its 2020 renewable energy target;
  •  Imports of crude oil, natural gas and hard coal have been expanding since 2002 to meet the EU’s energy demand;
  • The EU has continued to increase access to affordable energy since 2012 following setbacks caused by the economic crisis.
