Wind energy; electricity production, capacity and supply of wind, 2002-2019


This table shows monthly, quarterly and annual figures of the production of electricity by wind energy, the capacity of wind turbines and an index for the amount of wind supply for the production of electricity. The figures are broken down by onshore and offshore wind. The index for the amount of wind is only available for wind turbines on land.

Data available from 2002 to June 2019.

Status of the figures:
The figures in this table are definite from January 2002 to December 2017, adjusted provisional from January 2018 to December 2018 and provisional from January 2019 onwards. Given that this table is stopped, the data will not be made definite.

Changes as of 11 September 2019:
None, this table has been stopped.

When will new figures be published?
No longer applicable.

This table, for the subject electricity production, is continued in the table Elektriciteitsbalans; aanbod en verbruik (Dutch only).
