Decreasing energy consumption in all sectors except services
Final energy consumption for all sectors is increasing at EU level since 2014 (+0.9%/year for total final consumption). The increase is especially high for transport (+1.5%/year) and agriculture (+2.8%/year). This trend is contrary to the decreasing trends on consumption for all sectors between 2007 and 2014 (global economic crisis).
