Institutions & Energy Policy
The Ministry of Economic Affairs and Climate Policy (EZK), through the Directorate-General for Climate and Energy, oversees the establishment of national energy and climate policies.
The Ministry of Infrastructure and Water Management, through the Directorate-General for the Environment and International Affairs (DGMI), is responsible for environmental policy.
The Netherlands has significant natural gas reserves (659 bcm of proven reserves at end-2019), 75% of which come from the Groningen field. According to a 2013 study, the Netherlands has from 200 to 500 bcm of technically recoverable reserves of shale gas. Oil resources are scarce (17 Mt at end 2019).
The Netherlands had the most expensive gasoline in the EU in 2018 (€1.62/l) due to its high excise tax (0.79/l). Gasoline prices reached €1.65/l in 2019.
Diesel prices reached €1.34/l in 2018 and €1.36/l 2019. The excise tax on diesel (€0.50/l in 2020) is among the 10 highest in the EU.
Trends in road fuel prices follow that of international prices.
Energy consumption per capita (4.1 toe in 2019) is 24% higher than the EU average, mainly because of the large refining and petrochemical industries. Per capita electricity consumption is 6 400 kWh, which is 14% above the EU average.
After a 1.4%/year increase over 2015-2017, total energy consumption decreased by -2.1% in 2018 and 2019 to 71 Mtoe.
Issues & Prospects
According to NEO 2019, the primary and final energy consumptions are forecast to decline by 10% and 7%, respectively, over 2018-2030. The decline would mainly come from space heating for final consumption and would mostly affect natural gas for primary consumption.
