Table description


This table shows the production of electricity, the input of fuels, and the use of installations, in the Netherlands. Electricity is obtained by the transformation of fuels such as natural gas, hard coal and fuel oil; solar and wind energy; and the use of hydro power. The figures are on the production of electricity, the heat released, fuel input, renewable energy commodities and installed capacity, broken down by Combined Heat and Power (CHP) installations and other installations. Finally, a distinction is made between central and decentral production of electricity and heat, where decentral production is broken down by sector.

Data available:
From 1998 onwards.

Status of the figures:
Figures 1998-2014 are definite. The 2015-2019 figures are provisional.

Changes as of 5th of March 2021
Provisional figures of 2019 have been added.

When will new figures be published?
Definite figures 2015-2018: Second quarter 2021.
Revised provisional figures of 2019: December.

Description topics

Fuel input
The amount of fuel used for the production of electricity and/or heat.
Units of heat
The amount of commodity used for the production of electricity and expressed in units of heat. The energetic value of the different types of energy commodities, such as fossil fuels and nuclear material, are expressed in Joules (J).
The following relations exists between physical units and units of heat:
1 terajoule (TJ = 1,000 billion Joules) equals about 31,600 m3 of natural
gas.
1 TJ equals more than 24,000 kg of fuel oil
1 TJ equals about 40,000 kg of hard coal
1 TJ equals 277.8 MWh of electricity (1 Watt equals 1 Joule per second).
Total input
Total of different types of fuel and other commodities, such as natural gas and hard coal, used for the production of electricity and/or heat.
Natural gas input
Total of natural gas used for the production of electricity and/or heat. Natural gas is a gaseous fuel of natural origin mainly consisting of methane. It results from the same process that leads to the formation of crude oil. 31,600 m3 of natural gas is about 1 TJ.
Fuel oil input
Total of fuel oil used for the production of electricity and/or heat. This oil remains after the distillation in the refinery. 24,000 kg of fuel oil is about 1 TJ.
Hard coal input
Total of hard coal used for the production of electricity and/or heat. Hard coal is a fossil fuel existing of carbonized rests of vegetal origin. 40,000 kg hard coal is about 1 TJ.
Other fuel input
Other commodity used for the production of electricity, such as chemical and industrial gases, biomass, waste, blast furnace gas, nuclear material and steam.
Output
The total amount of electricity and/or steam/heated water generated in the Netherlands from the input of fuels, nuclear energy, wind energy, solar energy and hydro power. This includes the own consumption of the power plants to produce the electricity.

Steam/heated water output
The total amount of steam/heated water generated in the Netherlands from the input of fuels, nuclear energy, wind energy, solar energy and hydro power.
