Sustainability of Amsterdam port and region under pressure due to congestion on electricity network

Liander announced that a large part of Amsterdam will be in congestion, including the port area. This means that newly established companies (leads) and existing companies will not receive new or additional electricity. In other words, the power grid is full. This congestion will affect the sustainability of business processes and products of companies in the area, and thus of the port, in the years to come. Because the port plays a crucial role in the city and port’s ambition to be climate neutral by 2050, concerns are considerable. This congestion requires the highest priority and creativity from energy companies, governments and politicians in order to be resolved.
