Renewable in % electricity production

Luxembourg aims to increase the share of renewables in final energy consumption to 11% by 2020, in accordance with the EU Directive on renewables (5% at end-2015). By 2020, the share of renewables should account for 8.5% of the heating consumption (6.9% at end-2015), 11.8% of electricity production (6.2%) and 10% of the transport's consumption (6.5%).

To comply with the European ...

CO2 fuel combustion/CO2 emissions

Luxembourg failed to achieve its 28% GHG emission reduction target under the Kyoto Protocol as GHG emissions in 2012 were 8% below their level in 1990. In 2014, GHG emissions were 9% below their 1990 level at 12 MtCO2eq.

Energy-combustion related emissions have decreased by 17% since 2010 to 8.7 MtCO2 in 2015.
