In , low-carbon energy sources (i.e. renewables and nuclear energy) continued to dominate the electricity mix for the second year in a row, together generating more power than fossil fuel sources. Fossil fuels (i.e. coal, natural gas and oil) were responsible for 43 % of all gross electricity generation in , a decrease of 11 percentage points across the EU compared with (54 %). By   Energy use grew quickly, doubling every 10 years. The cost of energy production was declining steadily, and the efficient use of energy was simply not a concern. After World War II unleashed nuclear power, the government looked for a home for "the peaceful atom." They found it Europe was taking its first steps towards economic unification. On Ma , the Treaties of Rome were signed by those same six member states. These treaties established both the European Economic Community (EEC) and the European Atomic Energy Community (Euratom). This was the true beginning of full :// Share of renewable energy almost doubled between and The EU seeks to have a 20 % share of its gross final energy consumption from renewable sources by ; this target is distributed between the EU Member States with national action plans designed to plot a pathway for the development of renewable energies in each of the Member States..

  Europe is no longer in a situation of continuous economic growth and many cities, especially non-capital cities in Central and Eastern Europe, but also old industrial cities in Western Europe, face the serious threat of economic stagnation or decline. Our economies in their current form are Energy comparisons by primary energy consumption and ‘corrections’ which are a better approximation of final energy demand can be explored here.
