Indicator: Energy consumption for buildings

A graph shows the building-related final energy consumption for room heating, room cooling, hot water and lighting for 2008 to 2021. The indicator decreases with fluctuation. No differentiation is shown between the individual uses.

Final energy consumption associated with buildings decreased by 9,7 % between 2008 and 2021.However, according to the 2010 Energy Concept, the heat demand of buildings should have decreased by 20 % between 2008 and 2020. In fact, consumption fell by only 12 %.Due to the cooler temperatures during the heating period, the final energy consumption relevant to the building has increased by 1,7 % compa... read more
