Production-based greenhouse gas emissions

The share of renewable energy sources such as wind energy, solar energy and biomass is relatively low. Secondly, industries with a high greenhouse gas intensity are heavily represented in the Netherlands, e.g. electricity companies, refineries, basic metal industry, chemical industry, road transport and livestock farming.

Why SF₆ emissions from the renewable energy sector should not

Renewable energy installations require more switchgear in the electricity grid than fossil fuels, because it takes more solar panels and wind turbines to produce the same electrical output as a single coal power station. So as renewable power generation grows, emissions of SF₆ to the atmosphere should grow too.
