The energy consumption of the European Union (EU) which reflects the energy necessary to satisfy inland consumption in 2013 come back its early 1990s level, said Eurostat, the statistical office of the EU on Monday.

       Figures released by Eurostat show that the consumption in 2013 amounted to 1,666 million tonnes of oil equivalent (Mtoe) and down by 9.1 percent compared to its peak of 1,832 Mtoe in 2006.

     In total, the EU produced 790 Mtoe of energy in 2013. Nuclear energy accounted for the largest share of EU domestic production of energy which stood at 29 percent, following by renewables (24 percent), solid fuels (20 percent), gas (17 percent), oil (9 percent) and non-renewable wastes (1 percent).

       As a result, the EU was dependent on energy imports for slightly over a half of 53 percent of its consumption in 2013.
