Renewable energy in the Netherlands

Renewable energy production takes up a great deal of space. The Netherlands is unable to meet its energy demand using domestically grown biomass – there is simply not enough land available. The Netherlands has a relatively small share of renewable energy, and a low EU target for renewable energy compared to other EU Member States. The Dutch target for renewable energy is so low because the Netherlands has fewer options compared to other EU countries. For example, it has no mountains with storage reservoirs.
