Netherlands: industry prices for natural gas 2008-2019

On average, the price of natural gas for industry has been higher for facilities with a consumption of up to 100,000 Gigajoules (Gj). Between 2013 and 2017, consumption tariff rates decreased annually. However, 2018 and 2019 saw prices increase, with the price for those with a consumption of up to 100,000 Gj rising to 3.87 euro cents per KWh. This was the highest price during the period of consideration.

Residential prices

Households in the Netherlands with a consumption of 20 to 200 GJ a year have seen the overall price of natural gas increase since 2010. By the second half of 2018, prices including all taxes, levies and VAT had reached 8.6 euro cents per KWh. As of January 2019, residential end users in the Dutch capital of Amsterdam paid 8.57 euro cents per KWh for natural gas. This was 1.6 euro cents more than the EU average.

Demand on the rise

Natural gas consumption had been in decline since 2010, falling from 45.6 to 32.9 billion cubic meters by 2015. Since then the country has seen an increase in demand. This has occurred alongside the recent decline in indigenous production. This fall in production is due to the cut in output from the Groningen gas field.
