Malta generates 7.2% of its energy from clean energy sources

Up to 2017, Malta managed to generate 7.2% of its energy from clean energy sources, which was just 2.8% less than the target of  10% established by the EU. The Eurostat statistics show that when Malta became a member of the EU it only produced 0.1% of clean energy.

The statistics also show a consistent increase in clean energy which from 4.7% in 2014 went up to 7.2% in 2017. However, Eurostat statistics show that in the production of clean energy, Malta is the third from the bottom, before the Netherlands and Luxembourg which produce 6.6% and 6.4% of clean energy respectively.

Malta is in a better position than a number of countries to meet its targets for clean energy. In the EU, Sweden is the champion of clean energy producing almost 55%. To date, 11 countries in the EU have managed to reach their targets in the production of clean energy.
