Ynzo in Amsterdam sends us this news:
From 1st January 2007, all services/authorities/bodies of the city of Amsterdam will run on green electricity that has been produced from the city's own waste. This makes Amsterdam the first city in the Netherlands powered in this manner. All trams and subways will run on this energy, and also all streetlamps will be lit by energy from the same source.
Amsterdam says it wants to make a contribution to reducing global CO2 emission. This initiative equals the emission of about 82,500 cars annually. [if you can read Dutch, there's more here]
