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 2013:

  • 20 EU countries had met their 2010 interim target and a majority had also reached their 2011/12 target
  • Further measures would still be needed if the EU as a whole was to meet its 2020 renewables target. If the 2009/10 yearly growth rate in renewables were maintained up to 2020, then 11 countries would fail to reach their national targets
  • In 2010, the total share of renewables in the EU was 12.5%. In the EU's transport sector, it was 4,7%.
