Biomass power plant
In 2020, AEB finished construction on a sustainable power plant in Amsterdam’s Western Docklands. The plant, which runs on biomass – low-quality Dutch lumber –, has allowed AEB to double the amount of sustainable heat delivered to the city’s heat grid. The biomass power plant effectively reduces the city’s reliance on fossil fuels, avoiding 67,000 tonnes of carbon emissions every year. The AEB Bioenergy Plant converts up to 110,000 tonnes of low-grade prunings and waste lumber into renewable energy for Amsterdam each year.
