These graphs show the changes in emissions and growth in the Power, Industry, and Buildings sectors in the EU
Agriculture Agricultural emissions in the EU27
Emissions have declined since 1990, despite a slight increase in agricultural production.
Power Emissions and generation in the EU27
Emissions intensity fell fast enough that emissions declined overall, even though electricity generation grew.
Industry Industrial emissions and production in the EU27
Despite increasing output in the industrial sector, direct emissions fell, while electricity demand rose as the industrial sector shifted fuel consumption towards a less carbon intensive fuel mix.
Buildings Building emissions in the EU27
Emissions associated with direct fuel combustion in the buildings sector fell, but were offset by a shift from direct to indirect emissions due to a rise in electricity consumption.
Transport Transportation emissions and passenger miles and freight transport index
Passenger miles and freight transport rose rapidly before declining as a result of the recession. Emissions grew slowly but steadily until they peaked in the mid-2000s.
