atw Vol. 63 (2018) | Issue 3 ı March 200 NEWS year for which data are available, the consumption has reduced by 1.7 %. However, over the years, the distance from primary energy consumption target has fluctuated greatly. The biggest divergence from the target was in 2006 (16.2 %, a consumption level of 1 723 Mtoe), while a record low was reached in 2014 (1.7 %, 1 509 Mtoe). Over the last two years the gap rose again, to 4 % above the 2020 target, equating to a consumption of 1 543 Mtoe in 2016. In 2016, gross inland energy consumption in the European Union, which reflects the energy quantities necessary to satisfy all inland consumption, amounted to 1 641 Mtoe. This was a 10.8 % decrease compared with the peak of nearly 1 840 Mtoe in 2006, but a 6.1 % increase compared to the decade between 1996 and 2006. Energy consumption falling mainly in Greece, Malta and Romania over last decade While 19 Member States increased their energy consumption between 1996 and 2006, growth in energy consumption was recorded in only two Member States between 2006 and 2016: Estonia (13.4 % increase to 6.2 Mtoe in 2016) and Poland (3.2 % increase to 99.9 Mtoe in 2016). Among the 26 Member States where energy consumption decreased, Greece (-23.6 %), Malta (- 22.5 %) and Romania (-20.2 %) recorded decreases of more than 20 %. These figures are issued by Eurostat, the statistical office of the European Union, and are complemented by an article on energy saving in the EU. | | (18501600), ec.europa.eu People FORATOM welcomes new President, Dr Teodor Chirica (foratom) FORATOM is pleased to announce that Dr Teodor Chirica has been appointed by the association’s General Assembly as FORATOM President for a two-year period starting on 1 January 2018.
