Implementation of biomass in the Netherlands 2010

Infographic | 14-11-2014

A total of 115 petajoules of biomass was used in the Netherlands, in 2010, in the supply of energy.

The figure shows the distribution of this use over the various applications. The main applications are in waste incineration and in co-firing of biomass in coal-fired power plants. In 2010, bio-energy was the main form of renewable energy available in the Netherlands. To date, all Dutch households together generate more renewable energy using wood burners than they do using solar panels.
