This 2005 report provides an update of the “Trends to 2030”
published in 2003. The new “baseline” takes into account a high energy import
price environment, the unsatisfactory economic growth of recent years and the
more subdued growth prospects taking into account demographic developments. It
includes, furthermore, new policies and measures implemented in the Member
States. The results were derived with the PRIMES model by a consortium led by
the National Technical University of Athens, supported by some more specialised
models. These projections to 2030 encompass energy demand, transformation,
imports and production by fuel and sector. They also give, in the annex, a
breakdown of the main energy and transport variables by Member State.
