Parliamentary questions about transparency in the Dutch electricity market
The Dutch minister for Economic Affairs and Climate was questioned by a member of the Dutch House of Representatives regarding the sourcing of electricity by hospitals, universities and museums in the Netherlands.
The questions were motivated by an overview of electricity usage which is being made by Greenpeace. The focus of the questions were concerns that almost three quarters of hospitals, universities and museums are “still using dirty electricity from coal plants”. The Minister responding explained that through the use of the Guarantee of Origin, these public services are able to buy from renewable plants, and are doing so in increasing numbers.
