Consumption by mode
- Stable distribution of the energy consumption by mode since 2000 at EU level, road representing around 82% of transport consumption.
- Air consumption (including international aviation) has increased significantly since 2013 (3.6%/year) due to the economic growth rebound. To a lesser extent, road transport has increased again also (1.8%/year).
- Road and air consumption have decreased similarly between 2007 and 2013 (-1.5%/year and -1.3%/year respectively) due to 2 main factors: low economic growth and more efficient vehicles and planes.
