Table description


This table contains figures on the average consumption of electricity and natural gas per m2 floor area for different types of buildings used in the services sector. Only data on electricity and gas delivered through the public grid are included. The consumption of natural gas has been corrected for temperature effects.

Energy intensities are often used to evaluate policies and for benchmarking.

Data are based on year 2012.

Status of the figures:
The status of the figures is definite.

Changes as of 30 January 2019:
The underlying codes of the classifications used in this table have been adjusted. These are now in line with the standard codes set by Statistics Netherlands.
The structure and data of the table are not adjusted.

Changes as of 11 March 2016:
No changes, this is a new table.

When will new figures be published?
Energy intensities do not change very quickly over time. Though gas intensities have been corrected for temperature, it is not possible to completely remove all temperature effects on gas intensities. To limit the effect of temperature on gas intensities, the energy intensities have been published for the year 2012. The year 2012 was an average year when looking to temperature.

Description topics

Average consumption of electricity
Delivered electricity via the public grid.

The grid of national electricity distribution company TenneT and the regional distribution companies of electricity.

Electricity is a flow of electrons used to light lamps or to operate washing machines. Electrons are elementary particles in an atom with a negative charge that flow by a potential difference.
