Energy efficiency trends of final consumers

    • Energy efficiency of final consumers improved by 1.3%/year between 2000 and 2015, with a slight slowdown from 1.4%/year before 2007 to 1.1% /year since 2010 (ODEX=82 in 2015 --> 18% energy efficiency improvement or 1.3%/year).
    • Larger gains for households (2.1%/year).
    • Rate of improvement divided by 2 in industry, since the economic crisis (-1%/year since 2007 compared to 2%/year before).
    • Regular but limited improvement in transport (1%/year): greater for cars than for trucks. 
    • Few “measurable” progress in services.
