Final energy consumption in households


The indicator measures the total energy consumed by households as final users, expressed in 1000 tonnes of oil equivalent. For the total energy, different fuel types have been taken into account such as solid fuels, oil products, gas, electricity, derived heat and renewable sources.

The indicator has been chosen as a proxy for indicators in the key area 'Improving buildings' of the resource efficiency initiative. This area focuses on the energy spent in households for heating purposes and how the amelioration of buildings can contribute to energy-saving plans. Eurostat collects data on total energy consumption in households split by fuel category. More detailed data for energy consumption in households (e.g. energy for space heating, space cooling, water heating and cooking) will be collected in the future under the Commission Regulation (EU) No 431/2014 of 24 April 2014 amending Regulation (EC) No 1099/2008 of the European Parliament and of the Council on energy statistics, as regards the implementation of annual statistics on energy consumption in households.
