Region North of Amsterdam leads the way in the Netherlands in the field of knowledge development and the application of sustainable energy. This is thanks to its progressive nature paired with all the advantages required for innovation and sustainable enterprise: wind, water, sun and gas.

Add in the healthy business climate and intensive collaboration among the business community, knowledge institutes, educational institutions and governmental agencies and you’ve got a region that is always one step ahead in the energy transition.

Fossil fuels are being phased out gradually in favour of alternative sustainable energy sources. And not just the geographic advantages are being fully utilised in this respect – in addition to offshore wind, wave and tidal energy, the region is a forerunner in the field of green gas and biogasification. And solar is naturally also another key source of energy.

Holland above Amsterdam serves as an international example and is the leading national platform in the field of sustainable energy. It is a forerunner on all fronts in the economy of the future, with a very distinct and strong ambition: to be energy neutral by 2040.
