Primary Energy Consumption, 2010

When comparing the primary energy consumption of 2005 with 2010, 19 Member States reduced it (see in yellow) and 12 increased it (see in green). Could we say then that the Member States in yellow are in a better position to reach the target of 20% of savings, as part of the Europe 2020 targets? By "Primary Energy Consumption" is meant the Gross Inland Consumption excluding all non-energy use of energy carriers (e.g. natural gas used not for combustion but for producing chemicals). This quantity is relevant for measuring the true energy consumption and for comparing it to the Europe 2020 targets. The "Percentage of savings" is calculated using these values of 2005 and its forecast for 2020; the Europe 2020 target is reached when this value reaches the level of 20%.
