Provision of heat consumes most energy in the region
In 2015, almost half of the final energy consumption in the region (about 47% or ≈32.9 TWh) was needed to produce heat. 30% of final energy was consumed by the mobility sector (≈21.4 TWh/a) and about 23% in order to generate electricity (≈16.4 TWh/a).
This shows the significance of the two sectors heat and mobility when discussing the lowering of total energy consumption and increasing the share of renewable energies in the heat and mobility sectors.
[Wärme = heat; Strom = electricity; Mobilität = mobility]
