Presentation on theme: "Economic Radar of the Sustainable Energy Sector in the Netherlands, 2008 – 2011 Maarten van Rossum (Statistics Netherlands) Daan Zult Joram Vuik May 2014."— Presentation transcript:

1 Economic Radar of the Sustainable Energy Sector in the Netherlands, 2008 – 2011 Maarten van Rossum (Statistics Netherlands) Daan Zult Joram Vuik May 2014 UNEP meeting: Measuring Progress on the “Greening” of the Economy: Policies and Practices An International Technical Workshop

2 Economic Radar of the Sustainable Energy Sector in the Netherlands 1 Content presentation Why monitoring? Concepts and indicators Methods Results Conclusions Future plans

3 Economic Radar of the Sustainable Energy Sector in the Netherlands 2 Why? Reorganise energy structure  climate change and energy dependence Economic opportunities? How large is the sustainable energy sector?

4 Share of renewable energy, 1990 – 2012 Economic Radar of the Sustainable Energy Sector in the Netherlands 3

5 What are we talking about? The supply side of sustainable energy and energy saving, from a value chain perspective. Economic Radar of the Sustainable Energy Sector in the Netherlands 4

6 5 Definitions The exploitation phase: The actual production of renewable energy The pre-exploitation phase : The companies that are active in the value chain that precedes the production of renewable energy E.g.: o Production of solar panels o R&D aimed on sustainable energy technologies o Transport of wind turbines o Trade in solid biomass Includes energy saving

7 Scope Product profiles: technologies ‘solar PV’, ‘solar CSP’, ‘solar thermal energy’, ‘biogas’, ‘biomass (solid) & waste’, ‘biofuels’, ‘bio-refining’, ‘wind on land’, ‘wind at sea’, ‘heat & geothermal energy’, ‘energy from water’, ‘energy saving’, ‘electric transport’, ‘smart grids’, ‘hydrogen technology’ and ‘CO2 capture and storage’ Process profiles: value chains ‘R&D’, ‘consultancy’, ‘transport’, ‘preparation/raw material production’, ‘supply, assembly and construction’, ‘production of energy carriers’, ‘installation and maintenance’. Economic Radar of the Sustainable Energy Sector in the Netherlands 6

8 7 Indicators Employment (fte) Monetary indicators (in current prices) Gross value added = Production minus intermediate use Production Export and import Investment Innovation Patent requests

9 Economic Radar of the Sustainable Energy Sector in the Netherlands 8 Methodology exploitation phase Uses available sources Hernieuwbare energie in Nederland (CBS, 2012) Physical energy production for each available source/technology Price information from national accounts Employment based on operational costs (source: ECN)

10 Economic Radar of the Sustainable Energy Sector in the Netherlands 9 Methodology pre- exploitation phase micro approach Population of companies that are active in sustainable energy Sources ECN, Ecorys, RVO, PolderPV, Statistics Netherlands Connect companies to company level economic data For each company (gu)estimate its company profile (process, technology) and specialisation factor. Distinguish between specialised and non-specialised companies No additional adminstrative burden for companies

11 Spotlight: Rebase of micro population Additional companies Company profiles and specialisation factor re-evaluated Re-create time-series Number of companies in 2009 went from ±700 to ±1000 Economic Radar of the Sustainable Energy Sector in the Netherlands 10

12 Economic Radar of the Sustainable Energy Sector in the Netherlands 11 Sustainable energy sector as part of the economy

13 Employment +13% Economic Radar of the Sustainable Energy Sector in the Netherlands fte fte

14 Employment per technology (pre-exploitation) Economic Radar of the Sustainable Energy Sector in the Netherlands 13

15 Employment per sector (pre-exploitation) Economic Radar of the Sustainable Energy Sector in the Netherlands 14

16 Gross value added +7%, current prices Economic Radar of the Sustainable Energy Sector in the Netherlands bln euro 2.4 bln euro

17 Economic Radar of the Sustainable Energy Sector in the Netherlands 16 Gross value added in the exploitation phase, current prices

18 Economic Radar of the Sustainable Energy Sector in the Netherlands 17 International trade in goods (total sector) Export Import

19 Economic Radar of the Sustainable Energy Sector in the Netherlands 18 Trade balance (total sector) Mln euro

20 Economic Radar of the Sustainable Energy Sector in the Netherlands 19 Investment (total sector)

21 Economic Radar of the Sustainable Energy Sector in the Netherlands 20 Innovation: patent requests Bron: NL Octrooicentrum

22 Economic Radar of the Sustainable Energy Sector in the Netherlands 21 Annual patent request, two viewpoints 15% van pre-exploitatie bedrijven vraagt een patent aan in periode Bron: NL Octrooicentrum

23 Economic Radar of the Sustainable Energy Sector in the Netherlands 22 Conclusions Employment +13% to fte in 2011 Share of employment from 0,25% to 0,28% More employment in the pre-exploitation phase Employment in Solar and Wind increased Employment in energy saving stable Share in GDP increased from 0.38% to 0.4% From net importer to net exporter Relative large amount of patent request

24 Economic Radar of the Sustainable Energy Sector in the Netherlands 23 Recommendations for further research Step forward, but further development is needed Exports of services better imaging (offshore wind) Intensifying cooperation between institutes -Electric transport (RVO) -Offshore wind (RVO) Strengthening European/international harmonization (Eurostat) Share knowledge and coordinate with neighboring countries (e.g. UK, Germany, NGO’s) Integrate wishes Topsector Energy and Energy Agreement

25 Plans for 2014 Provide updates on the Radar ( ) Strengthening European harmonization (Eurostat) Participation project ‘new handbook on EGSS’ Improve products: -integrate insulation installation activities -improve methodology/model for solar thermal and zonPV. -fine tune ‘offshore wind’ and ‘electric driving’(RVO) develop fast module for employment (t-1) Economic Radar of the Sustainable Energy Sector in the Netherlands 24
