Trends and projections in Europe 2014: tracking progress towards Europe's climate and energy targets for 2020

This 2014 edition of the annual European Environment Agency (EEA) 'Trends and projections' report assesses the progress of 33 European countries and the European Union (EU) in achieving their climate mitigation and energy policy objectives. These objectives include international commitments under the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) and its Kyoto Protocol, as well as EU domestic policy targets consistent with the '20-20-20' objectives of achieving, by 2020, a 20 % reduction of GHG emissions (compared to 1990 levels), a 20 % share of renewables in energy consumption, and a 20 % saving of the Union's primary energy consumption (compared to projections).
