Abstract

Az Európai Unió a közös fellépést hangsúlyozva az Energia 2020 elnevezésű dokumentumban az energiahatékonyságra, a megújuló energiaforrások részarányára és az üvegházhatású gázok kibocsátására vonatkozóan három célt tűzött ki. Tanulmányunkban a 28 tagállam előrehaladását vizsgáljuk a vállalások tükrében 2001 és 2012 között. A s- és a b-konvergencia számításával igazoljuk a tagállamok közötti összetartást, ugyanakkor a g-konvergencia eredményei árnyalják a képet: a hiányából arra következtethetünk, hogy az egyes tagállamok közötti különbségek ugyan megmaradtak 2001 és 2012 között, mértékük azonban jelentősen csökkent. A felzárkózás üteme a megújuló energiaforrások esetében a leggyorsabb, az energia- és emisszióintenzitásnál a kedvező folyamatokat negatívan befolyásolja a 2008-2009-es válság, átmeneti divergenciát okozva. Az úgynevezett konvergenciaklubok számítása során kialakult csoportok a régi és új tagországok közötti különbségekre hívják fel a figyelmet.* Journal of Economic Literature (JEL) kód: P28, P48, Q48.
