Until 1990s energy consumption was stably leaded by industry (35%), but relocation of industries, and integration of efficient technologies achieved to reduce it to 25% until 2010, when it stabilized. 

Energy consumption in industry is based nearly totally in fossil fuels (Odysee H2020 report November 2016), with 35% of gas, 32% electricity, 30% coal and oil, which make the sector highly vulnerable to externalities, especially because EU imports more than 90% of oil, and 66% of gas. 

EC report of February 2017 “Monitoring progress towards the Energy Union” remarks that energy intensity industry decreased 15% at EU level from 2000 to 2010 but started to grow with speed after 2013. 

Countries lower energy intensity rates in order to have independent and cost-effective industry. However, countries show significant differences, with countries where the energy intensive is close to 40% and others with only 10%. 

Commission report “Energy use in the EU industry” shows harmonization and proper mechanism to boost RES in industry are required.

RESINDUSTRY aims to increase the energy independency of the European industry sector, by decreasing its energy intensity through a higher integration of Renewable Energy Sources. 

The long-term objective is to increase the industry competitiveness by decreasing its energy bill, rising their energy independency and self-production, thus uncoupling their energy costs from geopolitical externalities. 

To achieve these long-term strategic objectives, the short-term objectives are to booster RES investment in industry by improving OPs with new policies for RES promotion.
