The dependency of the European Union (EU) on energy imports, particularly of oil and natural gas, forms the backdrop for policy concerns relating to the security of energy supplies. This article looks at the production of primary energy within the EU and, as a result of the shortfall between production and consumption, the EU’s increasing dependency on energy imports from non-member countries. Indeed, more than half (55.1 %) of the EU-28’s gross available energy in 2017 came from imported sources.
This article provides an overview of oil statistics covering crude oil as well as petroleum products. Energy statistics are available for all 28 EU Member States) and 11 non-EU countries. Data are available for the period 1990 to 2017.
This article provides an overview of the energy economy in the European Union (EU) in 2017, based on annual data from each Member State. Trends are shown for the main energy commodities for primary energy production, imports and exports, gross inland consumption and final energy consumption.
This workshop aims to critically present the advantages and indispensability of advanced biofuels and CO2-based fuels not only for the European economy but also for the environment and for the climate.
