By 2020, the main airports of the Netherlands, which include the airports of Amsterdam, Rotterdam-The Hague, Eindhoven and Lelystad, will switch to wind energy. Royal Schiphol Group announced the signing of an agreement for 15 years with the company Eneco. This company undertakes to supply annually 200 GWh of "green" energy, which equals the consumption of one city of 60 000 inhabitants.

 

Renewable wind energy, produced exclusively on the territory of the country, Netherlands airports will be used as early as January 1, 2018. The share of natural energy will increase with the opening of new wind parks.

 

The transition to renewable energy sources will be supported exclusively by the domestic producer, and the company will use exclusively Dutch electricity produced by wind energy.
