Bert Hubert did an analysis of the Dutch Electrical Power numbers. This is a continuation of his first post.
Nuclear. These numbers appear to be correct, and come from our single operational nuclear power plant in Borselle.
Fossil gas. I think this includes only our ‘regular’ natural gas power plants. However, other sources authoritatively say we also burn a steady 458 MW of ‘biogas’.
Coal. Probably complete.
Waste. The Netherlands incinerates a lot of waste, and this leads to the production of electrical power. Not a lot though.
Wind onshore. Turns out this number only includes wind farms directly connected to TenneT. In other words, there is a lot more onshore wind power than reported in this number.
Wind offshore. Most people consider this number to be good & to include all the offshore wind farms.
Other. No one knows what this is (!!), except it sometimes peaks to 5 GW. But not recently. Goes up and down between 50 and 600 MW more or less.Dutch Electrical Power Numbers part 2
If Europe is serious about becoming energy independent (from Russia today, from someone else tomorrow), it’s time to publish transparent data on energy sources.
Hello, open data, anyone?
