Dutch greenhouse area has already met its 2030 climate goal

Greenhouse horticultural area 'Het Grootslag' in the Netherlands is the first to achieve its 2030 climate goals. That is what the 'Het Grootslag Area Enery Vision' drawn up by Greenport Noord-Holland Noord (NHN) and ECW Energy finds.

This area vision describes how this greenhouse cluster in the Medemblik municipality is doing regarding energy, where recent efforts have been made. Those include constructing a heat network with sustainable sources. It also outlines the steps that still need to be taken towards 2030. The national goal is for Het Grootslag to be fully climate neutral by 2040.

Next step
On March 13, this vision will be presented to Harry Nederpelt, Medemblik alderman for Economic Affairs. Ilse Zaal, the Greenport NHN Steering Committee's chairperson and member of North Holland's Provincial Executive and ECW Energy's director, Robert Kielstra, will hand over the document.

The next step? Translating the area vision into concrete implementation. The parties involved are currently exploring how and in what form this can be achieved. That includes considering how other greenhouse horticultural areas in the north of North Holland (Alton and Agriport) are doing this.

The last plot in the area was sold in 2021, bringing this West Friesland greenhouse horticultural area's development and realization to completion
