Ten-year overview of Dutch green energy
Sustainable energy sources accounted for 1.2% of Dutch energy supply last year, representing almost a trebling in market share since 1990. The figures were released yesterday by the Netherlands' statistical agency and the national energy and environment centre Novem. The data cover renewable energy plus heat recovery technologies such as district heating. Of the renewables, wind and thermal and photovoltaic solar grew fastest during the 1990s although biomass and bio-fermentation together still account for three-quarters of all sustainable energy.
