The EU Power Sector in 2018

State of Affairs of the Energy Transition in the Electricity Sector in Europe

  • Project Duration: 12/2018 - 02/2019

The power sector will play a crucial role in attaining the European climate targets, which aim to cut greenhouse gases by at least 40% by 2030, compared to 1990. Tracking progress in the power sector is hence of utmost importance.

For the fourth year in a row, Sandbag and Agora Energiewende have joined forces to present the state of the energy transition in the European power sector, to update what happened in 2018. Key topics include renewable and conventional power generation, power consumption, and CO2 emissions and policy updates. We also make the data used to generate this report available for download in order to enable others to perform up-to-date analysis without needing to reinvent the wheel.
