After Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, the Dutch energy market, like other European markets, has dealt with high gas and electricity prices throughout most of 2022. Despite the drop in the prices following a series of measures, the Netherlands still faces some challenges, including rising capital costs, supply chain disruptions and rising interest rates. The energy crisis has also sparked discussions on power market design, with the European Commission proposing reforms at the EU level to reduce consumers’ exposure to market volatility. At the national level, the Dutch government’s nuclear energy ambitions could limit further renewable build-out and suppress future power prices.
