In our paper, we survey the changes of the last 10 years regarding the use of renewable energy in Hungary and the surrounding EU countries (Austria, Bulgaria, Croatia, Czech Republic, Poland, Romania, Slovakia and Slovenia). In 2015, the share of renewable energy in EU28 is 16.7% of final energy consumption, 28.8% of electricity, 18.6% of heati
...ng/cooling and 6.7% of transport. We present the renewable energy targets of Hungary and the surrounding member states and their fulfillment in 2015. We also look at the share of the gross domestic energy and renewable energy consumption.
