Eurobserv'er Barometer (2008-2010) (EUROBSERV'ER)

Download PDFDownload PDF
Since 1999, the Eur'Observ'ER projects have been working to monitor progress in the development of renewable energies, analysing main trends and helping interested parties understand to what degree the EU and Member States are on track. They cover the different sectors and technologies like wind power, photovoltaics, solar thermal, solid biomass, biofuels, biogas/municipal solid waste, geothermal heat pumps, small hydro, and give outlooks on marine energy and concentrated solar power. They offer information on industrial key players and market shares. The projects' particular added value is the fact that they are right up to date, providing data considerably earlier than official statistics and so facilitating the analysis of the sector and its progress, especially with a view to the renewable energy targets set by the EU. The projects have adapted over time to the developments in the sector: in this way, new biomass indicators have been developed and new technologies taken on board.

Results

  • 18 thematic barometers published over three years, i.e. 6 barometers per year, reviewing the industrial and economic dynamics and growth in each Member State with regard to a specific renewable energy sector (such as wind);
  • Publication of three annual, overview barometers summing up progress in the renewable energy sector in the EU and comparing it with the targets set out by the EU;
  • The setting up of a cartographic visualisation and information query Internet module (GIS).
