The Climate Agreement that was signed on 28 June 2019 signified an important move in the climate policy arena in the Netherlands. An ambitious target was set for 2030 and the focus shifted towards implementation of changes in the heat supply system on the local level. Mandates and regulation that are currently on a national scale will be transformed towards decision making on a local level. What does this mean? Are municipalities ready for these new responsibilities? What has already changed? What are the challenges?
