Share of renewable energy in gross final energy consumption

The share of renewable energy in gross final energy consumption is calculated based on the data on wind energy, solar energy, hydropower, tidal energy, geothermal energy, biomass (wood, straw, biogas, biofuels), renewable waste, and energy from heat pumps.

Share of renewable energy in electricity

The share of renewable energy in electricity is calculated based on the volume of hydropower, wind energy, solar energy, biomass (wood, straw, biogas, biofuels), geothermal energy produced. In the Directive 2009/28/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council on the promotion of the use of energy from renewable sources, the target for the share of renewable energy in electricity is not defined for each Member State.

Share of renewable energy in heating and cooling

The share of renewable energy in heating and colling is calculated as the gross final consumption of energy produced for heating and cooling from renewables divided by the total gross final energy consumption for heating and cooling. In the Directive 2009/28/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council on the promotion of the use of energy from renewable sources, the target for the share of renewable energy in heating and cooling is not defined for each Member State.

Share of renewable energy in transport

The share of renewable energy in transport is calculated based on the volume of renewables consumed in transport (biofuel, electricity).
