This report presents the realized energy savings in the Netherlands for the period 1995-2007 for the sectors households, industry, agriculture, services, transport, refineries and electricity, and for the national level.

The figures on energy savings are based on the ‘Protocol Monitoring Energy Savings’, a common methodology and database for calculating energy savings. Results are presented for savings on final energy use, conversion in end-use sectors (co-generation) and conversion in the energy sector. National savings for the period 1995-2007 equal 0.9% per year on average, with a de-creasing tendency in recent years. Continuing the trends of last year, the highest figure for end-use sectors is found for agriculture (2.6%) and the lowest figure for transport (0.1%). An uncertainty analysis reveals that the margin for the national savings figure is +/- 0.3 percent-point.
