The international organisations (custodian agencies) that are responsible for the respective SDG-indicator publish methodological guidelines for the calculation of the indicator - so-called global metadata.

Displayed here are the national time series that fit the global metadata best as well as their comparability to the global metadata. Please find further methodical and country-specific information of the time series in the related national metadata sheet.

Time series available

Renewable energy share in gross final energy consumption (according to national definition)
Renewable energy share in total final energy consumption (according to UN definition)

Comparability with global metadata

The time series is compliant with the global metadata.
