Regionalisation of the Final Energy Consumption in Europe

In the project eXtremOS bottom-up models of the final energy consumption were developed, to be used as input data for energy system analysis. The final energy consumption (FEC) of NUTS-0 will been published on an Europe-wide scale by eurostat /ECE-02 19/. The different final energy sectors, industry, private households, transport and services and the energy carrier are distinguished. By using further datasets like /ISI-12 17/, /ISI-102 16/, /ISI-05 18/, /ECE-03 17/ the final energy consumption per sector and energy carrier can be split into applications in the sectors private households, industry and services and into branches in the sectors industry and services. The spatial distribution of the final energy is highly essential for network simulations in the energy system analysis. Therefore, the final energy consumption is distributed over the country using a sector-specific regionalization. The methodology and results of the regionalization are described by each sector industry, private households, transport and services. The map below shows the final energy consumption per square kilometer of the NUTS-3-region in 2017.
