Progress reports

Every two years, EU countries report on their progress towards the EU's 2020 renewable energy goals. Based on the national reports, the European Commission produces an EU-wide report which gives an overview of renewable energy policy developments in EU countries.

Findings from the latest EU-wide report in 2015:

  • 25 EU countries are expected to meet their 2013/2014 interim renewable energy targets
  • In 2014, the projected share of renewable energy in the gross final energy consumption is 15.3%
  • The EU's 2020 renewables target has resulted in around 326 Mt of avoided CO2 emissions in 2012, rising to 388 Mt in 2013
  • It has also led to a reduction in the EU's demand for fossil fuels to the tune of 116 Mtoe (2013 figure)
  • The 2014 projected share of renewable energy in transport is 5.7% meaning that achieving the target will be challenging but feasible, with some EU countries making good progress
