Table description


This table provides information on deliveries of motor fuels for transport and other customers in the Netherlands. Deliveries are either for consumption in the Netherlands and international road transport, which is called final consumption, or for international sea and air transport, which is traditionally called bunkering.

The table gives figure for all modes of transport and Agricultural and mobile equipment. Figures for relevant motor fuels are given by transport category. Pure biofuels for road transport are not included in this table. Blended biofuels are included in the deliveries of motor gasoline and transport diesel. Biofuels are products produced from agricultural crops.

Deliveries of motor fuels are expressed by energy (petajoules) and physical units (million kg or million kWh). Deliveries for road transport are also published in volume (million litres). This table includes figures (in petajoules) on total transport, total road transport, total water transport, total air transport and total rail transport. This is not possible for physical units, due to different units (e.g. kg and kWh) are not countable.

Since 2013, low-duty red diesel no longer sold. The customers of these red diesel, such as construction and agriculture, have since been obliged to fill the high-duty diesel also consumed by road transport. Until August 2016 was a month made a model-based estimate of the share of road transport in the use of diesel. This model-based estimation is no longer considered responsible for determining monthly figures. The difference in consumption of diesel between road transport and other consumers in the tables by month is therefore lapsed. On an annual basis, the difference in consumption of diesel between road transport and other consumers will be published in the following table: 'Energy balance sheet; supply and consumption, sector'.

Data available from:
From 1946.

Status of the figures:
This table contains definite figures until 2018 and provisional from January 2019.
Since this table is discontinued, the figures will not become definite.

Changes as of 30 July 2021:
None; this table is discontinued.

When will new figures be published?
No longer applicable.

This table is succeeded by 'Crude and petroleum products balance sheet; supply and consumption'. See section 3.

Description topics

Motor fuels in petajoule
Amounts of substances, expressed in petajoules, combusted for the propulsion of vehicles transporting persons or goods, mobile- and none mobile equipment, including motor gasoline, transport diesel, kerosene, natural gas, electricity and fuel oil. Pure biofuels for road transport are not included in this table. Blended biofuels are included in the deliveries of motor gasoline and transport diesel.
A joule is a unit of energy equivalent to 0.24 calories. A Petajoule (PJ) equals 1,000,000,000,000,000 joules (10 to the power of 15) and is equivalent to 31.6 million cubic metres of natural gas or 278 million kilowatt-hours of electricity.
Road transport and other consumers
All passenger and freight transport on public road by car, auto bus, goods vehicle, motorcycle, moped, etc. Includes transport on own premises and consumption of mobile equipment, such as tractors and mobile machinery for construction (which typically do not operate on public roads).
Electricity
Electricity from an external source used to power an electric motor. The motor's battery can be charged at special charging points or through a normal socket. Electricity sourced from the internal battery, e.g. in hybrid cars, or through braking energy recovery, is not included here.

The volumes published here are estimates based on the number of vehicles running solely on electricity and the average energy consumption per type of vehicle (mainly cars, vans, HGVs, buses including trolley buses, mopeds and electric bikes).
Rail transport
All passenger and freight transport by rail, like train, tram and metro. Excludes transport on own premises.
Trolley buses are included in road transport.
Electricity
Electricity used by trams and trains.
Motor fuels physical units
Amounts of substances, expressed in million kg or million m3, combusted for the propulsion of vehicles transporting persons or goods and mobile- and none mobile equipment, including motor gasoline, diesel, kerosene, natural gas, electricity and fuel oil. Pure biofuels for road transport are not included in this table. Blended biofuels are included in the deliveries of motor gasoline and transport diesel. Biofuels are products produced from agricultural crops.
