Germany and France, along with the Netherlands, Estonia and Bulgaria, are not on track to meet their 2020 targets for reducing primary energy consumption as of 2015, according to a report published by the European Environment Agency on Friday.
Moreover, initial estimates suggest a 1.4% increase in energy consumption Europe-wide in 2015 was followed by a further year-on-year increase of 0.6% in 2016, and it is now “uncertain” whether the EU as a whole will meet its 2020 target of a 20% energy saving.
The preliminary data for last year suggest a further three countries – Austria, Belgium and Cyprus – also exceeded their 'linear trajectory threshold', although Estonia appears to be back on track to meet its 2020 target, the EEA said.
