Background data on electricity labelling 2009

Since 1 January 2005 Dutch power suppliers must label their electricity according to its origin. In this context CE Delft has established the Netherlands’ 2009 electricity supply mix. This consists of electricity from natural gas (over 50%), coal (18%), nuclear (5%) and renewables (21%). The environmental footprint expressed in terms of CO2 emissions and radioactive waste was 364 g CO2/KWh and 0.00014 g nuclear waste/KWh.
