Highlights

  • The government decided to halt production at the Groningen gas field mid-2022.
  • The National Climate Agreement targets a 49% reduction in GHG emissions by 2030.
  • The State plays a central role in the gas market through its participation in the largest companies.
  • The power market is dominated by E.ON, Vattenfall and Eneco.
  • Gas production has dropped by 53% since 2014 and 2019.
  • The country plays a central role in Europe's oil supply with ¾ of the oil product output being exported.
  • Around 60% of the power production comes from gas.
  • Gasoline prices are the highest in the European Union.
  • Electricity prices for households decreased by 35% in 2020.
  • Natural gas dominates the energy mix (45% in 2019).
  • Oil consumption is driven by the large petrochemical industry and refining sector.
  • Coal consumption has been decreasing rapidly since 2015 (-45%).
  • Shell, Groningen Seaports Gasunie, and the province of Groningen launched in 2020 the 10 GW NortH2 project to produce hydrogen using offshore wind.

Abstract

  • 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.

  • Energy Supply

    Resources:

    The Netherlands has significant natural gas reserves (659 bcm of proven reserves at end-2019), 75% of which come from the Groningen field. Oil resources are scarce (17 Mt at end 2019).

  • Energy Prices

    Electricity:

    In 2020, electricity price for households decreased by 35% (€c14.5/kWh). The sharp reduction in 2020 was mainly driven by tax decreases while the increase in 2019 was mostly due to a rise in the renewable energy surcharge. Electricity price for industry are rather stable (€8.6c/kWh in 2019).

  • Energy Consumption

    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 6 500 kWh, which is 15% above the EU average.

    Total energy consumption has decreased by -2.1%/year since 2017, to reach 72 Mtoe in 2019. Previously it increased by 1.4%/year over 2015-2017.

  • Issues & Prospects

    According to NEO 2020, the primary energy consumption is forecast to decline by 8.5% over 2018-2030. The decline would mainly come from space heating for final consumption and would mostly affect natural gas for primary consumption.
