How much power did renewable energies produce in 2018? How did greenhouse gas emissions develop last year? How high was the electricity consumption in 2018?
For the fourth consecutive year, Agora Energiewende and Sandbag have joined forces to develop a report on the state of the energy transition in the power sector in Europe. This annual review of key developments 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 electricity prices. This serves as background to reflect on where we are coming from, where we stand today, and what to look out for in 2019.
The launch event on 30 January in Brussels started with a presentation of the key findings from the new report followed by a panel discussion with
- Aurélie Beauvais, Policy Director, SolarPower Europe,
- Tom Howes, Deputy Head of Unit, DG Energy, European Commission,
- Henning Häder, Manager Energy Policy, Climate & Sustainability, Eurelectric.
The discussion placed the report in context of the ongoing reform and implementation of the EU climate and energy acquis.
