5 The port of Amsterdam, an energy port in transition

6 Energy consumption is growing, production is in transition Bron: BP Energy Outlook 2030 Global demand for energy keeps growing... But the importance of alternative energies is increasing Global energy consumptionGlobal energymix What does this mean for energy imports?

7 Facilitating an energy transition in bioenergy  It is a small step for the oil terminals to store biofuels.  The share of biofuels is approximately equal to the mandatory percentage that energy producers are required tot blend (approximately 5 % in 2012).  Two dedicated biodiesel plants are recently located in the Port of Amsterdam; fed by organic residues and rapeseed oil.

8 Why is Amsterdam interested in biomass?  Biomass is a new energy source and a driver of the Bio based economy.  Biomass transhipment fits in seamlessly with other transhipment of agri bulk  Biomass players are allready located in the port (e.g.coal terminals & agribulk terminals)  Amsterdam is perfectly suited as a renowned energy hub and having expertise of similar cargo flows.  Enormous growth potential: Five Coal-fired energy plants in the Netherlands already blend biomass.

9 Realizing energy transition on a regional and business level City Port Airport Bron: de bos atlas 2012 The energy atlas of Amsterdam

10 The Amsterdam Waste and Energy company (AEB) Facts per Year:  1,4 Million ton waste  Electricity: 1 Million MWh (eq. 285,000 Household = 75 % of Amsterdam)  District heating: 500,000 GigaJoule (12,000 Households ) PoA Project: Mapping the thermal infrastructure:  Mapping Heat, Cooling and Steam in the Port area.  Suppliers and demanders  Looking for more connections and synergy  By planning locate demanders nearby supplies

11 Wind energy in the port of Amsterdam Current Capacity is 65 MW which powers homes. The growing target for the port area is a total Capacity of 100 MW.  Amsterdam sustainable target: 40 % CO2 reduction.  Wind is the most profitable sustainable energy in The Netherlands.  Wind turbines contributes to the recognition of the port area and his identity.  The image of the wind turbines fits into the Industrial area with big scaled objects like chimneys and cranes

12 Our Innovation and sustainability fund supports on a business operations level New Crane mechanism using flywheels for kynetic energy Realizes an energy reduction of 30%-40% en lower CO 2 emissions Solar panels in Port Area Introducing crowd funding for implementing solar paneling on rooftops in port buildings

13 The next step: tying it all together Port of Amsterdam: Smart Grid? Waste & Recycling Plant
