Renewable energy; final use and avoided use of fossil energy, 1990-2013


Renewable energy is energy from wind, hydro power, the sun, the earth, biomass and heat from outdoor air and just milked milk. This table expresses the use of renewable energy in two ways:
1. Gross final consumption
2. Avoided use of fossil primary energy
In addition the table presents the avoided emissions of carbon dioxide by the use of renewable energy. Figures are broken down into energy source/technique and into application (electricity, heat and transport).

Data available from 1990 until 2013

Status of the figures:
This table contains definite figures, based on the national Protocol Monitoring Renewable Energy(2010, AgentschapNL).

Changes as of 29 June 2015:
None, this table has been stopped, because the method is changed.
The successor of this table is "Renewable energy; final use and avoided use of fossil energy ". See section 3.

When will new figures be published?
Not applicable.
