Table description


This table shows the supply and the consumption of hard coal, lignite + BKB (Braunkohlenbriketts) and coke-oven cokes. Supply is calculated as production plus recovered products plus imports minus exports plus net stock changes. This calculation of the supply results in the amount of hard coal, lignite + BKB (Braunkohlenbriketts) and coke-oven cokes consumed. This consumption is divided into consumption by energy companies, coke oven plants, industry, iron and steel and other consumers. This table is a redesign.

Data available from: January 2015.

Status of the figures:
- figures from 2019 are definite;
- figures of 2020 and 2021 are revised provisional;
- figures of 2022 are provisional.

Changes as of September 26th 2022:
Provisional figures for July 2022 have been added.

Changes as of 17 December 2021:
Figures for 2019 have become definite. Figures for 2015 up to and including 2018 have been revised. The most relevant adaptation is a reduction of imports and exports of cokes of a few tens of millions kg annually (corresponding to approximately 2% of consumption).

When will new figures be published?
Provisional figures: in the second month after the month under review.
Revised provisional figures : not later than in the following December.
Definite figures: not later than in December of the second following year.

Description topics

Energy supply
The amount of energy available for consumption in the Netherlands.
Total energy supply
The amount of energy available for consumption in the Netherlands (production plus recovered products plus imports and withdrawal from stocks) minus the amount which is not available for consumption (exports).
Production
The amount of energy transformed from another energy commodity.
Recovered products
Slurries and waste-heap shale recovered by mines.
Imports, total
Imports of energy commodities.
Of which from outside EU
Imports of energy commodities coming from non-EU countries.
Exports
Exports of energy commodities.
Stocks - beginning of period
The opening amount of stocks of coal and coal products.
Stocks - end of period
The closing amount of stocks of coal and coal products.
Stock change
Changes in stock are calculated as opening stock minus closing stock, in accordance with international energy statistics guidelines. A positive figure means that stocks have decreased, and the supply of energy has thus increased. A negative figure means the opposite: an increase in stocks and a decrease in consumption.
Statistical differences
The difference between the energy sypply and energy consumption of an energy commodity.

This difference arises because the figures on supply and consumption come from different sources
For many energy commodities, the difference is allocated to supply or consumption. Then this statistical difference is nil.
