EurObserv’ER - Barometer of Renewable Energies

RENAC is part of the EurObserv'ER consortium since 2010. Since 1998, the EurObserv’ER barometer measures the progress made by renewable energies in each member State of the European Union. 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 published. 10 renewable energy technologies (wind power (on und offshore), photovoltaics, solar thermal, CSP (Concentrated solar power), biogas, solid biomass, biofuels and renewables in transport, geothermal energy, heat pumps, hydro power, waste and ocean energy) are covered with energy and installation data less than 12 months old.

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 2030 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
