Energy productivity

In 2016, Belgiumʹs energy productivity amounted to 6.8 euro (chained euros, reference year 2010) per kilogram of oil equivalent (kgoe). To achieve the sustainable development goal by 2030, this figure must reach 10.9€/kgoe. The Federal Planning Bureauʹs projections indicate that this objective will not be reached, despite an upward trend.
