RES in Transport barometer 2023

+ 2.0 % The increase of renewable energy consumption for transport in the EU27 between 2021 and 2022 (in energy content)
The preliminary data gathered by EurObserv’ER suggests that renewable energy consumption in European Union transport, be it road, rail, maritime or air transport, driven by combustion or electric engines, increased by about 2.0 % between 2021 and 2022, to almost 19.4 Mtoe. As lockdown measures were gradually lifted in 2021, transport needs returned to normal. The renewable energy share of European Union transport, as defined by the Renewable Energy Directive (known as RED II), should inch forwards towards the 10% threshold through the application of the incentives arising from greater use of advanced biofuels and the development of electrification in road transport.
