Energy Efficiency Academy 2

The EU has an ambitious transition goal for the transport sector. This webinar will analyse the state of this transition and look at how fast changes are taking place in terms of energy consumption and improvements in energy efficiency. It will show the main drivers of growth in energy demand in transport and quantify energy savings. This webinar will in particular analyse energy efficiency trends in the EU since 2010 and the impact of COVID-19 in 2020.

Key messages

  • After 6 years of decline, EU transport energy consumption is rising again since 2013.
  • Transport accounts for 31% of final energy use in the EU.
  • The sector lags far behind other sectors.
