Taken from In-Cyprus

The share of energy from renewable sources, expressed as a percentage of gross final energy consumption in Cyprus, stood at 9.4% in 2015, according to data released by Eurostat today. The share was 8.9% in 2014 and only 3.1% in 2004. This leaves Cyprus with 5 years to achieve the 13% 2020 target.

Meanwhile, in 2015, the share of energy from renewable sources in gross final consumption of energy reached 16.7% in the European Union (EU), nearly double the share in 2004 (8.5%), the first year for which the data are available. The share of renewables in gross final consumption of energy is one of the headline indicators of the Europe 2020 strategy.

Since 2004, the share of renewable sources in gross final consumption of energy grew significantly in all Member States. Compared with a year ago, it has increased in 22 of the 28 Member States. With more than half (53.9%) of energy from renewable sources in its gross final consumption of energy, Sweden had by far in 2015 the highest share, ahead of Finland (39.3%), Latvia (37.6%), Austria (33.0%) and Denmark (30.8%). At the opposite end of the scale, the lowest proportions of renewables were registered in Luxembourg and Malta (both 5.0%), the Netherlands (5.8%), Belgium (7.9%) and the United Kingdom (8.2%).
