Publication: Energy balance sheet; supply and consumption, sector
This table contains figures on the supply and consumption of energy broken down by sector and by energy commodity. The energy supply is equal to the indigenous production of energy plus the receipts minus the deliveries of energy plus the stock changes. Consumption of energy is equal to the sum of own use in the energy sector, distribution losses, final energy consumption, non-energy use and the total net energy transformation. For each sector, the supply of energy is equal to the consumption of energy.
For some energy commodities, the total of the observed domestic deliveries is not exactly equal to the sum of the observed domestic receipts. For these energy commodities, a statistical difference arises that can not be attributed to a sector.
The breakdown into sectors follows mainly the classification as is customary in international energy statistics. This classification is based on functions of various sectors in the energy system and for several break downs on the international Standard Industrial Classification. There are two main sectors: the energy sector (companies with main activity indigenous production or transformation of energy) and energy consumers (other companies, vehicles and dwellings). In accordance with international conventions, own use of energy companies only occurs within the energy sector and final energy consumption only for energy consumers. In addition to a breakdown by sector, there is also a breakdown by energy commodity, such as coal, various petroleum products, natural gas, renewable energy, electricity and heat.
The definitions used in this table are exactly in line with the definitions in the Energy Balance table; supply, transformation and consumption. That table does not contain a breakdown by sector (excluding final energy consumption), but it does provide information about imports, exports and bunkering and also provides more detail about the energy commodities.
Status of the figures:
Figures up to and including 2016 are definite. Figures of 2017 are revised provisional.
Changes as of 18 December 2018:
In December 2018 the Energy balance has been revised and corrected, concerning the following items:
1. Energy consumption in the chemical industry has been corrected for the years 2012 up to and including 2017. The adjustment results from a correction in the underlying energy data of a few large chemical enterprises. The supplied data from these companies for energy statistics appeared not complete, because the demarcation of the companies was unclear. This incompleteness was discovered by comparing data supplied to Statistics Netherlands with data supplied to the ETS system and data supplied to environmental annual reports. A result of this correction is that final consumption of natural gas is on average 22 PJ higher for the years 2012 up to and including 2017, final consumption of refinery gas is on average 12 PJ higher and electricity consumption is 1 PJ higher. These corrections affect calculated emissions of carbon dioxide which on average are 1.3 Mton higher for the years 2012 up to and including 2017.
2. Non-energy consumption in the chemical industry for the years 1990 up to and including 2017 has been adjusted downwards. A large not plausible change in the use of non-energy consumption of one company triggered additional research on the data of this company considering historical capacity, the rate of utilisation of the capacity, the efficiency and the relation with a neighbouring company. Result of this research was mainly a decrease of the non-energy use and the imports of oil with on average 50 PJ per year.
3. For the years 2015 up to and including 2017 data on bunkers of heavy fuel oil were not plausible. Additional research resulted in improvement of underlying data and figures are now about 20 PJ lower for 2015 and 2016.
4. For coal transit to other countries and stock changes of trading companies have been eliminated from published data. The reasons for this is a request from Eurostat to interpret the statistical regulation in such way that imports only relate to coal for inland consumption. Consequently, the exports of coal is now zero. Coal consumption has not been adapted.
5. In the energy balance (supply and consumption) now three types of coal are distinguished for the years 1990 up to and including 2014. This was already the case for the more recent years.
6. For solar photovoltaic Statistics Netherlands introduced a new method using administrative data. Consequently, the data for the production of solar photovoltaic have been adapted from 2012 onwards. In addition there is improved insight in which part of the solar photovoltaic is consumed by the producers resulting in an increased final consumption of electricity, mainly in the services sector, up to 1 PJ in 2017.
7. Within renewable energy a new energy commodity has been added: ambient energy. This is energy from below the soil surface, the atmosphere or surface water extracted by heat pumps. This adaptation follows Eurostat as a consequence of the adaptation of the EU regulation on energy statistics. The amount of ambient energy, produced and consumed in the sectors services, households and agriculture increases from almost negligible to 7 PJ in 2017.
8. Electricity consumption of the coke-oven plants has been shifted from input for transformations to own use to better follow the Eurostat method.
Further the aggregate 'Total other energy commodities' and the sector 'Water supply, waste management unknown' have been added.
Changes as of 29 June 2018:
Revised provisional figures of 2017 have been added.
Changes as of 25 April 2018:
Figures on the receipts of electricity and natural gas for 1990 to 2009 in the sub-sectors of the services have been corrected. Previously there were numbers, now there are dots (not available). For the years in question, the data is only available to a limited number of companies at this level of detail and therefore can not be published.
Changes as of 16 April 2018:
The sequence of the renewable energy commodities has been made the same as the sequence in the renewable energy statistics.
Changes as of 11 April 2018:
- The years 1990 up to and including 2009 have been added.
- The use of the symbols '.' and 'Empty cell' for period 2010 up to and including 2016 have been adjusted in G-S, U Services and 20-21 20-21 Chemistry and pharmaceuticals.
When will new figures be published?
Revised provisional figures: June/July and December of the following year.
Definite figures: December of the second following year.
