We are all being asked to shrink our carbon footprint by reducing energy consumption, but have you ever wondered how energy efficient the UK is compared with our European neighbours?

This infographic highlights the present and future targets for reducing energy consumption. It provides an insight into where the most energy is being used, and where the most effective savings are being made in average households.

The statistical breakdown emphasises current progress. It also indicates which countries are best at conserving energy. In the UK, we are not the best, but on a positive note we are not the worst either.

There remains a long way to go before targets are met. Nonetheless, little by little, positive steps are being taken across the European Union to reduce energy consumption.
