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 www.eurobserv-er.org. Deep links to individual issues can be found below.
