Table description


This table shows regional figures on the average consumption of energy (natural gas and electricity) of private dwellings broken down by type of dwelling and ownership for Nederland, group of provinces, provinces and municipalities. Besides, for total dwellings only, the share of heat distribution (district heating) has been added, because this is relevant for the interpretation of the height of the average consumption of natural gas.

Data available from: 2010

Status of the figures:
All figures from 2010 - 2017 are definite. Figures of 2018 and 2019 are provisional.

Changes as of August 2020:
Provisional figures of 2019 have been added.

When will new figures be published?
A revision to the method of this statistic is currently underway, causing the table to be delayed. The table will be updated with 2020 figures in Q4 2021.

Description topics

Average consumption of natural gas
The average annual consumption of natural gas for private dwellings calculated of the connection records of energy companies. The calculation includes dwellings connected to parts of town heating. These dwellings have very low or even nil consumption of natural gas. Because this the average consumption of natural gas of dwellings is lower in areas where parts of town heating is present.

The figures are rounded to fifty numbers and listed at 6 or more (occupied) dwellings by type of dwelling.
Average consumption of electricity
The average annual consumption of electricity of individual connections for private dwellings calculated of the connection records of energy companies. Excluded are collective consumption of e.g. lift systems or hall / gallery lightning. Excluded is electricity generated eventually in private dwellings, e.g. by solar panels.

The figures are rounded to fifty numbers and listed at 6 or more (occupied) dwellings by type of dwelling.
District heating
The share of dwellings connected to heat distribution (district heating).

Heat distribution is a heating system, by which the houses in a neighbourhood are heated by an underground network of hot water pipes. In many cases, heat distribution use residual heat from power plants. The consumption of natural gas of these houses is often very low or even nil. The amount of heat annual consumed by connected houses to heat distribution is not available. The share is indicated at 10 or more (occupied) dwellings. For the municipalities
a share of 5 or less is rounded to fives.
