In line with the 100% decarbonization policy of the European Union, to be achieved by 2050, the Netherlands is busy moving away from space heating with natural gas towards district heating with process heat, biomass and/or heat pumps. New-build homes in the Netherlands are by law no longer connected to the national natural gas grid.
A large number of small companies are picking up the new opportunities in the Netherlands to construct district heating warmtenetten. Companies like Twence or Warmtenet Dordrecht that currently has 3,000 homes connected and aspires to achieve 15,000 eventually.
