Analysis of the latest data on energy from renewable sources

The share of energy from renewable sources in gross final energy consumption in the EU-27 reached 12.5 % in 2010 and is showing steady progress towards the Europe 2020 target (20 %). During 2009 and 2010 the share of energy from renewable sources continued to grow despite the financial and economic crisis. The year-to-year growth in the gross inland energy consumption of all renewables was in 2010 at the highest level since 1990. Electricity production from biofuels (liquid and gaseous) as well as wind based electricity generation more than doubled between 2005 and 2010. Wood and wood waste continues to make the largest contribution to the share of energy from renewable sources in gross final energy consumption.
