Renewable energy sources, also called renewables, are energy sources that replenish (or renew) themselves naturally. Non-combustible renewables include hydropower, tide, wave and ocean energy, geothermal energy, wind energy and solar energy. Combustible renewables include biofuels and renewable municipal waste.
This indicator is calculated on the basis of energy statistics covered by the Energy Statistics Regulation. It may be considered an estimate of the indicator described in Directive 2009/28/EC, as the statistical system for some renewable energy technologies is not yet fully developed to meet the requirements of this Directive. However, the contribution of these technologies is rather marginal for the time being.
More information about the renewable energy shares calculation methodology and Eurostat's annual energy statistics can be found in the Renewable Energy Directive 2009/28/EC, the Energy Statistics Regulation 1099/2008 and in DG ENERGY transparency platform.
