Netherlands

Political targets for biogas and biomethane production

According to Directive 2009/28/EC, the Netherlands has a target share of renewable energy in gross final energy consumption of 14% by 2020. In 2012 this share was 4.7%. The NREAP for the Netherlands does not set a specific target for the utilisation of biomethane in the year 2020. The latest Dutch government set a target aiming at producing 24 PJ from biomethane in 2020.
