Overview

  • The energy consumption of transport is growing again since 2014 at EU level with the economic growth rebound (+1.1%/year), which contrasts with the previous period impacted by the economic crisis (-1.6%/year from 2007 to 2013). This is mainly due to an increasing consumption in some large EU countries, with even a significant increase in Poland (7.8%/year) and Spain (2.9%/year).
  • In 2018, the energy consumption of transport of the EU was 7% above its 2000 level.
