Abstract:

A report commissioned by the Minister of Economic Affairs has found that the closure of all the coal- power plants in the Netherlands by ---- could cost up to EUR-bn. The report further states that the closing of Dutch coal-fired power plants will not affect energy security, although electricity prices would increase as demand and trade increases. ...We are maintaining our forecasts for nuclear power since last quarter. We expect that the weak economic environment for nuclear power will mean that the majority of Dutch investment will be focused on non- hydropower renewables, particularly the -.- gigawatt (GW) offshore wind project. Danish firm DONG Energy has won the tender for the --- megawatts (MW) Borssele I and II offshore wind at the Borssele Alpha site. ...TenneT has also unveiled its idea to construct an island to be utilised as a hub for nearby offshore wind farms and an offshore interconnection point for surrounding European countries.

With the Eemshaven power plant being commissioned at end-----, an additional -.-GW of coal-fired capacity has been added to the overall power mix. ...No major changes are currently forecast for thermal power generation in the Netherlands, as we expect it to decrease slightly from --.-TWh in ---- to --.-TWh in ----, with the share of total power in ---- standing at --.- , decreasing to --.- in ----.

This is after a court ruled in favour of RWE and its Dutch subsidiary, Essent, allowing them to start operations at the plant. The opening of the Eemshaven plant will balance out some of the decrease in capacity due to the closing down of older coal-fired power plants. A total of five coal-fired power plants have been earmarked for closing by ----, of which the ---MW Borssele plant has already been shut down at end-----.
