Dutch emission of carbondioxide reduced in 2005

Newsitem | 07-09-2006

In 2005, the emission of the greenhouse gas carbondioxide (CO2) was lower by several percents compared to 2004. Mainly, because the energy sector used less fossil fuels, and more (+ 40%) renewable energy sources (wind, biomass) to generate electricity. Also, more electricity was imported than in 2004. CBS and MNP make this conclusion based on temporary energy and production data on 2005.
