EurObserv’ER - Barometer of Renewable Energies

Since 1998, the EurObserv’ER barometer measures the progress made by renewable energies in each sector and in each member State of the European Union in an as up-to-date way as possible (with figures less than 12 months old). EurObserv’ER produces a series of figure-backed indicators covering energetic, technological and economic dimensions.

Every two months one market report (barometer) dedicated to one particular renewable energy sector is released. Moreover, once a year an overview barometer gathers the main indicators published during the year and completes them with additional renewable sectors which has not been detailed.

The main objectives of our barometers are the following:

  • Monitor and analyze the development of renewable energy sectors in the EU
  • Evaluate the RES progression compared to the 2020 objectives of the European commission
  • Disseminate the results of the investigation to European journalists and energy actors
  • Enable all web visitors to freely download the barometer
