Unified Metrics Library - Energy Consumption intensity

Helper question

What was the company Energy Consumption intensity, in GWh per million EUR of revenue, during the period?


To achieve climate targets and transition to a low-carbon economy, it's crucial to reduce energy consumption levels. High climate impact sectors are sectors with significant contributions to greenhouse gas emissions.




"Energy consumption intensity" means the ratio of energy consumption per unit of activity, output or any other metric of the investee company to the total energy consumption of that investee company.

Regulatory Definition

According to the (EU) 2022/1288 of 6 April 2022, the metric is defined as "Energy consumption in GWh per million EUR of revenue of investee companies, per high-impact climate sector"


"Energy Consumption intensity" = "Total energy consumption (Gwh)" / "Total revenue (€m)"



Suppose your organisation falls under one of the high-impact climate sectors based on EC No 1893/2006 of the European Parliament regulations that classify economic activities. In that case, your organisation should report energy consumption intensity in GWh per million EUR of revenue.
