Primary energy consumption measures the total energy demand of a country. It covers consumption of the energy sector itself, losses during transformation (for example, from oil or gas into electricity) and distribution of energy, and the final consumption by end users. It excludes energy carriers used for non-energy purposes (such as petroleum not used not for combustion but for producing plastics).
This quantity is relevant for measuring the true energy consumption and for comparing it to the Europe 2020 targets in Directive 2012/27/EU. This objective refers to a 20% reduction of primary energy consumption in 2020 (excluding the non-energy use) compared to primary energy consumption by 2020 if energy and efficiency savings policies were not applied.
