EurObserv’ER Barometers

Since 1998 (and since 2008 with ECN/TNO), EurObserv’ER Barometers measure the deployment in renewable energy in each member state of the European Union. EurObserv’ER produces a series of figure-backed indicators covering energetic, technological and economic dimensions. Once a year an ‘Annual Overview Barometer’ compiles the main indicators published during the year and possibly completes these with additional renewable technologies.

The main EurObserv’ER objectives are the following:

  • Monitor and analyse the development of renewable energy in the EU (reported in the Barometers);
  • Quantify renewable energy employment effects (reported in the Annual Overview Barometers);
  • Provide an overview of renewable energy policy in the EU member states (see also the RES Policy Reports);
  • Highlight renewables financing characteristics (see also the Case Studies);
  • Evaluate the renewable energy progress compared to the 2020 objectives of the European Commission (reported in the Annual Overview Barometers).

The EurObserv’ER barometers are available free of charge at Deep links to individual issues can be found below.
