Overview

  • The energy consumption of transport has been decreasing since 2007 at EU level (-0.8%/year), which contrasts with the previous period (+1.5%/y from 2000 to 2007). This was mainly due to a stable or decreasing consumption in the largest EU countries:  quite stability in France and Germany; significant reduction in Spain (-2.8%/year), Italy (-1.8%/year) and UK (-1.1%/year).
  • In 2015, the energy consumption of transport of the EU was only 4% above its 2000 level.
