A favourable location by the sea, impressive port facilities, the presence of gas and a widely distributed energy grid make the Netherlands a natural energy hub for Europe. However, that position also demands that the Netherlands leads the way in innovations, for example in the field of CO2 reduction, renewable energy and smarter use of resources. Which is why the Netherlands is investing in the exceptional top sector Energy.
Where is this sector represented in the Amsterdam area?
Thanks to two illustrious universities and the industry-leading Science Park Amsterdam, there is lots of knowledge about Energy flowing through the city alongside the water in the canals – knowledge that finds its way worldwide via numerous initiatives, multinationals and attractive conference halls. Amsterdam is also an ideal testing ground to bring energy ideas close to the people. In this way, Amsterdam gets close to everyone who wants it; IAmsterdam.
