How much power did renewable energies produce in 2019? How did greenhouse gas emissions develop last year? How high was the electricity consumption in 2019? Is Europe on course to meet its 2030 climate and energy targets?
For the fifth consecutive year, Agora Energiewende cooperated with Sandbag to develop a report on the state of the energy transition in the power sector in Europe. This annual review uses recent statistical data to identify major developments in the European power sector by way of accessible charts and graphs. Key topics of the publication include power generation, power consumption, CO2 emissions, and performance of the EU-28. This serves as background to reflect on where we are coming from, where we stand today, and what to look out for in 2020.
The study was presented in a one-hour webinar by the co-authors, Matthias Buck, Head of European Energy Policy at Agora Energiewende, and Fabian Hein, Analyst at Agora Energiewende.
