Geothermal heat, cogeneration, energy producing glasshouses and many more less ambitious energy saving projects all contribute to the overall Dutch target, i.e. of achieving energy savings of 2% per year, a reduction of CO₂ emissions of 30% in 2020 and a 20% proportion of sustainable energy by 2020.
Recently the Dutch government decided to provide an extra incentive in the form of an additional 58 million euro for the Energy Innovation Agenda, on top of the 264 million euro already assigned to this item earlier in the year. The extra funding will be used for the projects Climate Neutral Cities, Green Gas from fermentation and gasification technology and for wind energy programs on land and at sea.
