Drivers of total energy supply variation
- Between 2014 and 2019, total energy supply increased twice less than final consumption at EU level: 21 Mtoe compared to 42 Mtoe.
- This lower progression was explained by changes in the power mix. A higher share of renewables (+4 pts) and a lower share of nuclear (-2 pts) and thermal (-2 pts) reduced the total energy supply increase by 18 Mtoe. Improved efficiency of thermal generation (+2.2 pts) with a shift from coal to gas contributed to a reduction of 19 Mtoe.
