This chapter looks at alternatives to conventional natural gas production in the Netherlands, following the earthquakes in Groningen, where much of the Dutch gas supply is obtained. Indeed, some 80% of Dutch households rely on gas for cooking and heating. However, the production of the Groningen field is gradually declining and will cease in a number of decades. It also has become clear that gas production from this field may cause considerable negative impacts such as subsidence and earthquakes. The situation in the Netherlands illustrates how energy production is increasingly reliant on the goodwill of the population living close to the energy project. Thus, the 2013 Energy Agreement provides for greater public involvement by requiring the introduction of participation plans and ownership or co-ownership in renewable energy projects.
