This study is carried out by Energy research Centre of the Netherlands (ECN) on assign-ment of the Dutch Ministry of EL&I, with the objective to provide insights in the effects of introducing a producer tariff for electricity producers. A producer tariff will increase the variable costs of electricity production in the Netherlands. As a result, production in the Netherlands will slightly decrease and net imports will increase. The effects, howev-er, are limited compared to developments in the reference scenario. Consequently, it is not to be expected that the introduction of a producer tariff of at most €1,00 per MWh will have a significant effect on possible future investments in new generation capacity. The commodity price for power shows a slight increase, however the effects on end-user prices are very small.
