Energy consumption, renewables output and CO2
Greenport West-Holland is the name under which greenhouse horticulturalists collaborate in this region of the Netherlands. In this baseline measurement CE Delft has established the energy consumption, CO2 emissions and renewables output of the horticultural greenhouses and other agro-related Greenport companies in the reference year 2016.
The study is based on a bottom-up analysis using detailed (‘6-digit’ postal code) energy consumption data obtained from regional grid operators. The study complements earlier studies based on national averages, so this method can be used to monitor energy transition progress in greenhouse horticulture at the level of individual municipalities.
