Renewable Energy in Europe – % of Gross Final Energy Consumption in 2020

In 2020, renewable energy represented 22.1 % of the energy consumed in the European Union. For comparison, in 2004, renewable energy accounted for 9.6% of the energy consumed in the EU. The share of RES in 2020 was around 2 percentage points above the 2020 target of 20 %.

With more than half of its energy from RES, Sweden (60 %) had the highest share among the EU Member States in 2020, ahead of Finland (44 %) and Latvia (42 %). The lowest proportions of RES were registered in Malta (11 %), followed by Luxembourg (12 %) and Belgium (13 %).

Taking into account the ambitions of the European Union, the share of RES should grow dynamically in the coming years.

The goal of the EU is to be a climate-neutral continent. This is the objective behind the European Green Deal, a package of policy initiatives, which aims to set the EU on the path to a green transition, with the ultimate goal of reaching climate neutrality by 2050.
