City of the Sun

Opened officially on 23 September 2009 by crown prince Willem Alexander, the City of the Sun is Europe’s first CO2 neutral residential project and the biggest in the world. The project is a shining example of the application of solar energy in housing. The project is the brainchild of architect Ashok Bhalotra, who hopes the City of the Sun will prove a source of infection from which the energy virus will cause a worldwide epidemic. With an aggregate potential of 5 megawatt in solar energy (in the combined HAL location, consisting of Heerhugowaard, Alkmaar and Langendijk) this project is unique in the world. The construction of the City of the Sun, part of the so-called HAL Vinex location, contributes to the realization of the Dutch energy targets to realize 20% sustainable energy while at the same time reducing CO2 emissions by 30%.

From a coal and gas country the Netherlands is slowly changing into a country of wind, solar and soil energy. The Chinese government has announced its intention to adopt and apply this system in China.
