Abstract In the context of the Dutch Meerjarenafspraak Energie covenant, WUR has monitored the energy use of mushroom companies. In 2016, the average Energy Efficiency Index (EEI) of all participating mushroom farms has increased to 81.8. The target of an EEI reduced to 73.0 has therefore not been realised. Farms cultivating exclusively white mushrooms did not realise the target either: Farms harvesting manually realised an EEI of 93.5 and farms harvesting mechanically realised an EEI of 75.9. Both an increased energy use per m2 and a reduced production per m2 resulted in an increased energy use per kg mushrooms. A 12% of the mushroom industries energy use is from renewables. However, as some farms use an unknown quantity of biomass as energy source, the real amount of renewable energy will higher than 12%. Though the Long-Term Agreement on Energy in Mushrooms has not been realised for 2016, some farms have realised very good results: These farms realised a 64 to 79% lower (fossil) energy use, or CO2-emission, than the average mushroom farm.
