13 percent more renewable energy in 2019

In 2019, the Netherlands generated 13 percent more renewable energy than in 2018. That brings the total share of sustainable energy to 8.6 percent in 2019, compared to 7.4 percent in 2018. Solar energy and biomass were the biggest risers.

This is evident from the annual figures of Energieopwek.nl

The combination of more solar panels and a sunny year led to a 46% increase in solar energy. 6 petajoules of solar energy were added. This year, solar panels produced more than 4 percent of all electricity in the Netherlands. With this, almost 2 million households can be supplied with electricity.
