This text is based on the Statistical Annex of the Voluntary National Review of Belgium (VNR) presented to the July 2017 United Nations High-Level Political Forum on Sustainable Development.

VNR Indicator: Renewable energy, percentage of gross final energy consumption

Definition: percentage of the energy consumption produced from renewable sources in the gross final energy consumption, as defined in the European Directive 2009/28/EC. The gross final energy consumption is the energy consumed by all final users, including losses in the transport network and the auto-consumption of the energy sector.

Objective: the share of renewable energy in the gross final energy consumption should increase.

UN Target 7.2: By 2030, increase substantially the share of renewable energy in the global energy mix
