These figures are published by Eurostat, the statistical office of the European Union. The increase in the share of renewables is essential to reach the EU climate and energy goals. The EU's target is to reach 20% of its energy from renewable sources by 2020 and at least 32% by 2030.
Among the 28 EU Member States, 12 Member States have already reached a share equal to or above their national 2020 binding targets: Bulgaria, Czechia, Denmark, Estonia,Greece, Croatia, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Cyprus, Finland and Sweden.
4 Member States are close to meet their targets (i.e. less than 1 percentage point (pp) away), 9 are between 1 and 4 pp away, while three are 4 or more pp away from their targets.
