Only 10% of electricity consumed in Luxembourg in 2019 came from renewable sources, according to data by the EU’s statistics agency Eurostat. 

Luxembourg closed the renewable energy ranking together with Hungary and Cyprus. Only Malta consumed less renewable energy, which made up just 8% of overall consumption.

This compares to leader Austria, where 75% of all electricity came from renewable sources, with Sweden (71%), Denmark (65%), Portugal (54%) and Latvia (53%) also in the top five.

The EU average was at around 35%.

Wind energy and hydroelectric power each made up 35% of electricity gained from renewable sources in the EU, Eurostat said, followed by solar energy (13%) and solid biofuels (8%).
