Netherlands power markets long-term outlook H2 2014

Netherlands power markets long-term outlook H2 2014

Report summary

Dutch power generation capacity is dominated by gas – a result of the country’s extensive indigenous gas reserves.  Although gas’ key role will continue, the addition of significant volumes of non-thermal renewable as well as some coal-fired capacity will put pressure on the fuel’s market share in the longer-term.
