Share of renewable energy at 5.9% in 2016Articles
Consumption of wind and solar energy rose, consumption of energy from biomass sources decreased slightly
Onshore wind turbines taller and more efficientArticles
Dutch wind turbines collectively generated 7.6 billion kWh of electricity in 2015.
More and more renewable electricity generated by wind turbinesArticles
Generation of electricity by wind turbines grew by nearly 20 percent last year. According to Statistics Netherlands (CBS) over half of total renewable electricity in 2015 was generated by wind turbines.
Wind most important source of renewable electricityArticles
For the first time, wind is the main energy source for renewable electricity. In 2014, wind turbine-generated electricity was approximately 8 percent up from 2013. At the same time, electricity generation from biomass was 16 percent below the level of 2013 as Statistics Netherlands announced today.

Employment rising in sustainable energy sectorArticles
Just over 45 thousand people (in full-time equivalents) were employed in the Dutch sustainable energy sector in 2013. This is 24 percent more than in 2008. In the remainder of the economy employment fell in this period (-3 percent). The sustainable energy sector also accounted for a larger part of the Dutch economy.

No increase share renewable energy in 2013Articles
Last year, 4.5 percent of total Dutch energy consumption was generated by means of renewable energy sources, i.e. the same as in 2012.
Lower renewable electricity productionArticles
Last year, 11.8 billion kilowatt hours (kWh) of renewable electricity were generated, i.e. 10.1 percent of total electricity consumption in the Netherlands and 0.4 percentage points below the level in 2012. Electricity production from biomass decreased, but electricity generation by wind turbines increased.
Share renewable energy stableArticles
The share of renewable energy in total energy consumption was 4.4% in 2012, almost the same as in 2011 (4.3%).
