Make your own request of indicators



A new tool is available on line to consult data from the EurObserv'ER Barometers. It's a module that allows internet users to set their own query parameters themselves by crossing a sector, an indicator (economic, energetic or political), a year and a geographic zone (a country or a group of countries) at the same time. The results are displayed on maps of Europe that also provide information on sector potentials. The assembled data results from the Barometers published since 2001. The system can also be used to download desired results in the form of an image or spreadsheet format file. The EurObserv'ER Barometers Project is supported by the European Commission.

Project objectives


Share of renewable energy in gross electricity consumption of EU countries in 2011

Since 1998, The EurObserv'ER barometer measures the progress made by renewable energies in each sector and in each member State of the European Union in an as up-to-date way as possible (with figures less than 12 months old). EurObserv'ER produces a series of figure-backed indicators covering energetic, technological and economic dimensions.

Every two months one barometer dedicated to one particular renewable energy sector is published in the magazine Systèmes Solaires - le Journal des Énergies Renouvelables and on PDF version. Moreover, once a year an overview barometer gathered the main indicators published during the year and complete them with additionnal renewable sectors which has not been detailed.

The main objectives of our barometers are the following:
» Monitor and analyse the development of renewable energy sectors in the European Union
» Evaluate this progression in comparison of the 2020 objectives European commission
» Disseminate the results of the investigation to European journalists and energy actors
» Enable all webvisitors to download the barometer

For 2010 - 2013 a new programme has been concluded with the Commission including new features:
» Adapt the project methodology to survey the 2020 objectives regarding the share of the RES in the final energy consumption
» Present in each overview barometer several best regional case studies of successful policies to attract private investment in RES sectors
