European energy supply 2017
EU: More energy from sustainable sources than from coalFor the first time, more energy was generated from sustainable sources than from coal in the past year. 12% more energy was generated from wind, sun and biomass incineration plants than in 2016. At the same time, Germany and the UK are responsible for more than half of this growth, in many other countries the growth is minimal.

These are the main conclusions from a research report commissioned by the EU, which can be read here. Some other remarkable conclusions: despite all the efforts for sustainability, the European energy consumption rose by 0.7% compared to 2016. Despite measures for CO2-emission reduction, it remained the same in the energy sector and, with all emissions sources included, it even increased. It is the commitment of France, the UK, the Netherlands, Italy and Portugal to phase out coal while Eastern European countries will stick to coal.
