This indicator is calculated on the basis of data covered by Regulation (EC) No 1099/2008 on energy statistics. Reporting countries provide additional information on renewable source not covered by the Regulation. The contribution of compliant biofuels is included only as of year 2011 and only for countries that confirmed full compliance with Article 17 “Sustainability criteria for biofuels and bioliquids” and Article 18 “Verification of compliance with the sustainability criteria for biofuels and bioliquids” of Directive 2009/28/EC – only quantities of biofuels that are compliant (sustainable) are counted towards the indicator. In period 2004-2010 all biofuels are counted towards the numerator of the share of renewable energy in fuel consumption of transport. All calculation provisions of Article 3(4) apply as well. More information about the renewable energy shares calculation methodology can be found on the Eurostat website. More information on renewable energies can be found on the DG Energy website.
