The EU has decided to reduce energy consumption by 11.7% by 2030

Due to saving technologies, the final energy consumption should be 763 million tons in oil equivalent.

The Council of the EU and the European Parliament agreed on a decision to reduce energy consumption by 11.7% in 2030 compared to the official forecast prepared by the European Commission in 2020. This was stated in the resolution distributed on March 10.

“The EU Council Presidency and the European Parliament reached a preliminary political agreement to reduce the EU’s final energy consumption by 11.7% by 2030. Member countries will have the opportunity to use a flexible approach to achieve this purpose,” the document said.

It was noted that the final energy consumption should be 763 million tons in oil equivalent, and primary – 993 million tons.

Now the decision of the legislative bodies of the European Union must be approved by all 27 member countries.

According to the European Commission, in 2021, final energy consumption in the EU reached 952 million tons of oil equivalent. It grew by 5% compared to the “pandemic” year 2020.

As a reminder, the proposal to change the Energy Efficiency Directive concerns aspects of the EU’s climate transition as part of the Fit for 55 package presented in 2021.

The initiative aims to bring the EU climate and energy legal framework in line with its goal of climate neutrality by 2050.

The final energy consumption in economic statistics is the calculation of the consumption of converted forms of energy, mainly electricity and various types of fuel.

There is also an indicator of primary consumption, which means the consumption of natural energy sources in an unprocessed form – coal, oil, gas, a source of renewable energy generators, etc.
