Share of renewable energy in the EU up to 19.7% last year

Brussels, December 29 - Neftegaz.RU. At EU level, the share of gross final energy consumption from renewable sources reached 19.7% in 2019, according to Eurostat figures.

With more than half of energy from renewable sources in its gross final consumption of energy, Sweden (56.4%) had by far the highest share among the EU Member States in 2019, ahead of Finland (43.1%), Latvia (41.0%), Denmark (37.2%) and Austria (33.6%).

At the opposite end of the scale, the lowest proportions of renewables were registered in Luxembourg (7.0%), Malta (8.5%), the Netherlands (8.8%) and Belgium (9.9%).

When looking at the national targets, 14 Member States are above their target levels for 2020. Six countries are near their targets: Hungary, Austria and Portugal (at 0.4 percentage points from their national targets), Germany (at 0.6 p.p.), Malta (at 1.5 p.p.) and Spain (at 1.6 p.p.).

By contrast, still quite far from their targets are France (at 5.8 p.p. from their national target), the Netherlands (at 5.2 p.p.), Ireland and Luxembourg (both at 4.0 p.p.).
