Dutch energy suppliers: Electricity & Gas

Dutch energy suppliers: Electricity & Gas

Energy (electricity and gas) is transported by regional companies in the Netherlands. The high-voltage electricity network is managed by TenneT, and the national gas transmission network is managed by N.V. Nederlandse Gasunie. The energy market in the Netherlands has been privatised since 2004, which means that you can choose your own energy supplier.

Green energy in the Netherlands

The Netherlands invests a lot in green energy, which is why it is pretty easy to receive sustainable energy, generated from renewable energy sources such as wind and solar.

You can also choose to generate your own energy by putting solar panels on your roof. Solar panels are no longer subsidised by the government, however, solar boilers will be subsidised until 2021.
