The general growth, in recent years, for the decentralized generation of electricity in the Netherlands is shown in terms of capacity and numbers of gas turbines installed by Dutch industry. This growth trend in cogeneration capacity is projected to the year 2000. NOx emissions standards for gas turbine plants are discussed with particular reference to “acid rain”. The contribution to national NOx emissions of gas turbines is presented for the present and for year 2000. Compliance with these standards by metering (source testing and monitoring) and the results of field testing for NOx emissions are shown.
