I am looking for a source that shows the development of the shares of renewable energies in the electricity production in Europe. I only found statistics about the share for the end energy consumption from Eurostat.
I wasn't aware of this data source (Eurostat), but looking around at other tables I found one for "Electricity production capacities by main fuel groups and operator (nrg_inf_epc)".
To get the results you're looking for (since the table is dynamic and I can't share a direct link), follow these steps, as shown in the screenshot below:
- Click the "+" next to "GEO"
- In the popup window, select "SIEC"
- Click "Select all" (or only those power sources you care to see)
- Click "Update" in the top right corner
You can then drag the categories onto the table to list the statistics by any combination of country, year, or energy source:
ENTSOE Transparency Platform
Another data source is the ENTSOE Transparency Platform. This doesn't have a table for all of Europe, but does provide current and historical data by country:
If you change the date range to cover a single year, the graphic changes to a pie chart, making it easier to visualize the relative size of each different source.
