(07 February 2022) – The EU has met the 10% target level for 2020 for the share of renewable energy (including liquid biofuels, biomethane and ‘green’ electricity) used in transport.
Eurostat data show that the average share of energy from renewables in transport increased from 1.6% in 2004 to 10.2% in 2020, standing 0.2% above the target level.
Among the Member States, 12 surpassed the target. Sweden was the clear leader in the use of renewables in transport with 31.9%, followed by Finland (13.4%), the Netherlands and Luxembourg (both 12.6%). Sweden’s leadership is explained by the high use of compliant biofuels.
In contrast, Greece (5.3%) and Lithuania (5.5%) registered the lowest use of renewables in transport.
