Energy statistics, the new European energy pocketbook “Eu energy in figures"

The 2015 statistical pocketbook covers a whole range of energy statistical data and indicators including energy intensity, carbon intensity, renewable energy shares, energy efficiency, employment and EU country profiles. The “Eu energy in figures - Statistical pocketbook 2015” is online.

The EU accounted for only 5.8% of the world's energy production in 2013, compared to China with 19.2% and the US with 13.8%, according to the EU's latest statistical energy pocketbook published. Meanwhile, the EU consumed 12% of the world's total energy, China accounted for 22.4% of energy consumption and the US 16.1%.
The latest statistics reveal that, in 2013, Ireland, Cyprus, Luxembourg and Malta were the most fuel import dependent EU countries with over 80% of their energy imported. Denmark, Estonia and Romania were the least import dependent with less than 20% of their energy imported.
Other figures show that in 2013 the EU imported 39% of its natural gas from Russia, 29.5% from Norway and 12.8% from Algeria. For crude oil, 33.5% came from Russia, 11.7% from Norway, 8.6% from Saudi Arabia and 8.1% from Nigeria. Overall in 2013, the EU's import dependency for all energy products was at 53.2%, rising to 65.3% for natural gas alone and 64.6% for hard coal.
In 2013, the renewable energy share in gross final energy consumption reached 15% for the whole of the EU, and the primary energy intensity – a measure of energy efficiency calculated as units of energy per unit of GDP in 2010 - decreased by about 15.6% from 2005 levels.
