Fossil fuel imports shot from 81% in 1990 to 98% in 2015.
This places Spain as one of the most import-dependent countries in the EU.
Fossil fuels are the principal source of energy in Spain, representing 74% of the country’s usage. The transport sector in particular is almost completely reliant on fossil fuels.
