The production of wind energy in the Netherlands fell by 13% last year despite the increase in the number of turbines, the national statistics office CBS said on Monday.
The decline was due to a lack of wind. According to a special wind index, which takes 100 as the benchmark, last year the amount of wind fell to 77, the CBS said.
The amount of sustainable energy produced in the Netherlands remained 9% of the total last year, in line with EU targets.
