In 2018 the energy intensity of the Portuguese economy was 133.2 toe/M€'2010. This value is above the EU-28 average (117.6 toe/M€'2010).



The increase of the renewable technologies power capacity allowed the reduction of the specific emissions of the Portuguese electricity sector. The 2019 value is 228 kg/MWh.


In the next few years it is expected that the renewable electricity will continue to allow the decarbonization of the Portuguese society.
