Unit consumption of air conditioning

  • In 2021, air conditioning represents only 1.2% of household electricity consumption in the EU. However, the average per-dwelling consumption for this end use is on the rise, increasing from 21 kWh/household in 2000 to 72 kWh/household in 2021, driven by the growing use of air conditioning appliances. 
  • This end-use is significant mainly in Malta, Cyprus, Greece and Croatia.

Consumption per dwelling for air conditioning

Note: The average consumption per dwelling is obtained by dividing the total consumption for air conditioning by the total number of dwellings, not only those with air conditioning.
