The Amsterdam College of Mayor and Alderpersons has outlined new plans to increase the pace of improving sustainability in the Dutch capital. As part of the new motion, the number of households using locally-generated sustainable electricity needs to have increased by at least 92,000 by 2020. Concrete plans have been drawn up for energy saving efforts and accelerating the process of connecting existing houses to district heating systems.
In recent weeks, there have been three drug-related fatalities in Amsterdam, while at least 14 other people have become seriously unwell after using heroin that they believed to be cocaine which they had bought on the street.
