On the basis of the POP study of Groningen, a realistic potential of provincial resources could be calculated. It turned out that the proposed local solutions can solve approximately 50% of the current demand for energy.

Nevertheless, it would still embody a more resilient solution as opposed to a future situation, where 95% of the energy resources needs to be imported from other regions in the world that are not always stable.
