Abstract: This report discusses the latest status of energy consumption trends in the EU-28, in the four main energy consuming sectors: residential, tertiary, transport and industry. During the last years, there have been notable efforts by the European Union to cut down on energy consumption and improve energy efficiency in the framework of the EU energy consumption targets within the Europe 2020 and 2030 strategies. The report explores the energy consumption progress from 2000 to 2018 in the four main sectors of the economy. Special focus is drawn on changes in the use of electricity and natural gas, as well as penetration of renewable energy sources in the energy mix. Energy indicators such as energy intensity and energy consumption per capita are also analysed. The report includes an analysis of the most important factors influencing energy consumption trends such as economic growth, population, heating demand, household characteristics and energy prices.
