The Metropolitan Region of Amsterdam (NL) is composed of 32 municipalities, the provinces of North Holland and Flevoland, and the Amsterdam Transport Authority. The metropolitan agenda embodies the topics that suits the scale of the metropole, one of this is the transition to a clean economy. The MRA wants to be less dependent on external energy sources and is keen to develop into an international hub for raw materials. The MRA has four priorities: the circular and ‘bio-based’ economy, preserving the built environment, expansion and interconnection of thermal networks (for heating as well as cooling), and the further development and scaling up of ‘smart grids’. The actions include compiling an atlas of resources, the use of undeveloped sites for the cultivation of bio-based crops or the temporary storage of demolition waste.
