The use of biomass and other renewable energy sources in Latvia has been hailed by the European Union.

New statistics compiled by Eurostat have indicated which European countries have made the biggest improvements in using sustainable power between 1999 and 2009.

It found that the utilisation of biomass has contributed to Latvia's impressive figures, as its sustainability increased from 32 to 36 per cent throughout the ten-year period.

Large levels of growth were also recorded in Denmark, which saw its energy efficiency increase by nine per cent, while Sweden also posted a seven per cent improvement.

Overall, the decade saw the use of renewable energy sources in the EU27 increase from five per cent to nine per cent.

Further research published by Eurostat has indicated that industrial production in this area was up by 0.2 per cent in February 2011 compared to the previous month - which was a seven per cent improvement on the same period in 2010.
