A new €400 million (£347m) investment programme for district heating networks aimed at providing “fossil free” heating and hot water in Amsterdam has been announced.
It is a provisional joint investment between Swedish power company Vattenfall and waste processing firm AEB Amsterdam over the next three years.
People in Amsterdam currently receive part of their district heating from Vattenfall’s Diemen power station and the rest from the waste company.
The Swedish power firm intends to make the shift from fossil fuels towards using waste to provide heating and hot water.
