EU Energy in figures - Statistical pocketbook 2016

This publication provides an overview of the most relevant annual energy-related statistics for the European Union as a whole and for each of its Member States. The data contained in this pocketbook is drawn from several sources: from the European Commission’s services, from international organisations such as the European Environment Agency and the International Energy Agency, as well as from the European Commission’s estimates when other data is unavailable.


The publication is divided into five parts:


CommONEnergy & Modena Canaletto: the transformation of a shopping centre into lighthouse project of energy efficiency

This supermarket which has approximately 1,200 m2 dedicated to the sales area is located in a residential zone close to the centre of Modena. The building underwent renovation during the summer 2016 before reopening in September. Around 50 workers were onsite per day during the 14 weeks the works lasted. The total requalification cost (supermarket and gallery) was 2.5 M €.


Economic Assessment Tool: shopping centre retrofit

The economic assessment tool allows estimating the energy saving potential and economic benefits of retrofitting shopping centers.

The tool targets managers and owners and allows entering relevant information about their centre. It provides quick information on the energy consumption and options to reduce energy demand, CO2-emissions, environmental impacts and provides an economic assessment of the investments.
