European Monitoring Tools for Energy Efficiency

February 2014

arrow ODYSSEE MURE newly designed website
The website of ODYSSEE-MURE has been redesigned with a new visual design to ease the navigation and gather all data tools in a single website dedicated to both for indicators and policies. View website.

arrow ODYSSEE energy efficiency indicators updated to 2011
ODYSSEE data on energy consumption, their drivers and energy efficiency indicators updated up to 2011. Visualize the 30 key energy efficiency indicators through an interactive mapping tool available.
View indicators. More information about database.

arrow ODYSSEE new datatools
Market diffusion facility: interactive tool presenting market penetration of efficient equipment, buildings or efficient practices in Europe together with the penetration of alternative energies and renewables at end-use level.
Decomposition facility: interactive graphs presenting the drivers of the energy consumption variation by sector.

arrow Energy efficiency trends in buildings Europe
Energy efficiency of households improved by 20% since 2000: this saved the equivalent of the total consumption of households for water heating, electrical appliances and lighting. The effect of the economic crisis can be seen on the electricity consumption trend of both households and services. More details are available through a selection of graphs describing energy efficiency trends in the household sector and service sector.
