OVERVIEW BAROMETER

14th annual assessment barometer
For fifteen years now, EurObserv’ER has been collecting data on European Union renewable energy sources to describe the state and thrust of the various sectors in its focus studies or barometers. The first part of this assessment is an updated and completed summary of the work published in 2014 in Systèmes Solaires (Journal de l’Éolien n° 14, Journal du Photovoltaïque n° 11 and Journal des Énergies Renouvelables n° 221, 222 and 224).
This publication provides a complete overview of the twelve renewable sectors. Their performances are compared against the stated goals set out by each country in its National Renewable Energy Action Plan (NREAP). Additionally, for the fifth year running, the EurObserv’ER consortium members have published their annual renewable energy share estimates of overall final energy consumption for each Member State of the European Union. These figures provide preliminary indication of how the various countries are faring along their renewable energy paths and whether their individual trends point to successful achievement of the targets set by European Directive 2009/28/EC.
