This table shows the production of electricity in the Netherlands from the various possible energy commodities. Electricity is mainly produced from the transformation of fossil fuels, biomass and of nuclear energy and renewable energy. By energy commodity figures are given on the production of electricity and the released useful used heat, such as used for heating of buildings or greenhouses. Central and decentral production of electricity and heat is distinguished. The centrally coordinated production of electricity and heat is generated by plants that deliver to the national high voltage grid of electricity transmission operator TenneT. Decentrally produced electricity and heat is not produced centrally, such as by installations located in companies for which the production of electricity and heat is not the primary purpose. It also includes wind energy, solar energy and hydro power.
