Sweden is the leader in the use of green energy in transport with an estimated 40% renewable energy in the transport sector. Finland ranks second with a share of 20 percent renewable energy in transport.
Followed by Austria and France with 9% share of green energy in transport. The fifth position is Portugal with 7%. Sixth and seventh are Ireland and Bulgaria with about 6 percent share of energy use in transport from renewable sources.
The share of energy from renewable sources is calculated in a harmonized way in the EU Member States using the SHARES instrument. In the transport sector, renewable energy sources typically include liquid biofuels, hydrogen and biomethane. The target is that in 2020 the average indicator of energy use in transport from renewable sources in the EU will reach 10 per cent, according to Eurostat data.
