The Netherlands

The Netherlands plays an important role in Europe as a hub for global energy trade, through its open market and integrated supply chains. However, the outlook for Europe’s second-largest producer of natural gas is challenging amid declining production and uncertain prospects for unconventional gas.

Key recommendations, 2014

  • Develop measures that clearly support Climate Agreement targets

    久草影院The government needs to define clear policies and measure that will support achievement of the 2030 49% emission reduction target.

  • Ensure security of supply and energy infrastructure resilience

    Ensure security of supply and energy infrastructure resilience during the country’s transition to becoming a net importer. Develop the remaining natural gas production potential from small and/or unconventional gas fields and support innovative uses of natural gas and gas infrastructure. Foster a dialogue with all stakeholders, including neighbouring countries, on the transition and its implications for the security of the energy system. Take into account the assessment of climate change impacts on the resilience of the energy sector, including the interrelations between gas and electricity sectors.

  • Strengthen dialogue and collaboration

    Further actively engage with North-West European electricity and gas market jurisdictions and across the European Union, on sustainable energy supply and competitive energy markets, recognising that the energy markets and systems of the Netherlands are interconnected with those of its neighbours, and acknowledging the need for dialogue at EU and North-West European levels.

  • Foster partnerships on technology and innovation

    Create opportunities for international technology and innovation partnerships to develop key emerging clean energy technologies, building on the Top Sector energy approach, notably for natural gas, CCS, hydrogen, offshore wind and biofuels, in collaboration with business and other stakeholders.
