Unit consumption of air conditioning
- Even if air conditioning only accounts for 1.6% of household electricity consumption at EU level in 2019, the average consumption per dwelling for this use is increasing with the diffusion of air conditioning appliances (from 19 kWh/household in 2000 to 59 kWh/household in 2019).
- This end-use is significant mainly in Malta, Cyprus and Bulgaria.
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.
