Table explanation


This table shows the indigenious production, total final consumption and import and export of different kinds of solid biomass commodities. The classification of solid biomass is based on the breakdown of biomass requested by Eurostat, which results from the European Regulation 2018/1999 and coordination with national users.

Data available:
From 2015 onwards.

Status of the figures:
Figures 2015-2021 are definite. The 2022 figures are revised provisional.

Changes as of June 2024
None, this table is new.

When will new figures be published?
In May 2024 definite figures 2022 and revised provisional figures 2023 will be published.

Description topics

Indigenous production
The capture or extraction of fuels or energy from natural energy flows, the biosphere and natural reserves of fossil fuels within the national territory in a form suitable for use. With biodiesel, biogasoline and biogas, the production of these fuels counts as indigenous production, the biogenic raw materials used for this are not yet considered as energy. Making waste suitable as an energy commodity, for example by burning it in waste incineration plants, also counts as extraction.
Imports
Imports of energy commodities.
Exports
Exports of energy commodities.
Total final consumption
The amount of energy used by companies, households and transport in the Netherlands. Energy can be used
- for transformation into other energy commodities, this is input minus the energy produced.
- as final consumption.

Total energy consumption =
Total net energy transformation + total own use + distribution losses + total final consumption.
Indigenous production (tons dry matter)
The capture or extraction of fuels or energy from natural energy flows, the biosphere and natural reserves of fossil fuels within the national territory in a form suitable for use. With biodiesel, biogasoline and biogas, the production of these fuels counts as indigenous production, the biogenic raw materials used for this are not yet considered as energy. Making waste suitable as an energy commodity, for example by burning it in waste incineration plants, also counts as extraction.

Imports (tons dry matter)
Imports of energy commodities.
Showed in amounts tons of dry matter.
Exports (tons dry matter)
Exports of energy commodities.

Total final consumption(tons dry matter)
The amount of energy used by companies, households and transport in the Netherlands. Energy can be used
- for transformation into other energy commodities, this is input minus the energy produced.
- as final consumption.

Total energy consumption =
Total net energy transformation + total own use + distribution losses + total final consumption.
