GWL Tterrein is a district of Amsterdam. It used to be the site of natural gas and hydropower plants. The specific measures were taken for the district redevelopment and were initiated and planned by the local people.
The specifics are as follows: all the cars in the entire area are parked underground. No parking car can be seen from the ground. Some roofs are green. The area with more than 100 households is very densely dwelled. It has some high-rise buildings as well. These areas are similar to some residential areas with busy traffic that people usually see. As shown in the picture below, the highlight is its re-development and re-utilization of the sites of some original factories, and it is therefore famous.
In Heerhugowaard, solar panels are available in every house in this suburb to collect solar energy. There are more than 3,000 homes in this area, and each house has solar panels on the roof to collect solar energy. In terms of population density, this area is basically equal to a medium-dense city. In addition, this area also enjoys wind farms. Wind power and solar energy make the area energy-independent.
