A clear analysis of the electricity production and consumption sector in the EU 28 offers firstly the possibility of knowing the final energy consumption for each segment (industry, households, trade, services and transports). The final energy consumption for the industrial sector decreased during the2001-2012 period, from 330872/1000 tons of oil equivalent to 282316/1000 tons of oil equivalent, while, if the transport sector is considered, an increase can be observed in consumption over the same period, from 348636/1000 tons of oil equivalent to 351080/1000 tons of oil equivalent. Although greenhouse gas emissions from energy used decreased during the analyzed period from 98.8 tons CO2e to 91.4 tons CO2e, a special attention must be paid to the energy production from unconventional sources. As regards the primary production of energy from renewable sources between 2001 and 2012, an increase was observed in solar power, from 16.4/1000 tons of oil equivalent to 5781/1000 tons of oil equivalent, and in wind energy, from 2296/1000 tons of oil equivalent to 17692/1000 tons of oil equivalent.
