What is the goal of the project?

Hermitage Amsterdam and Hortus Botanicus Amsterdam will start sharing renewable heat and cooling. Source is the Hermitage Amsterdam’s thermal energy storage for the heating and cooling of the exhibition halls. Heat that the Hortus Botanicus can use for the heating of the monumental greenhouses. The garden returns cooled water to the Hermitage for the museum’s air conditioning system.

On June 30, a 425 meter long underground connection between the Hermitage Amsterdam and the Hortus Botanicus was successfully completed. The construction of the underground link is part of the progressive sustainability project “between Art and Greenhouse”, where the Hermitage Amsterdam and the Hortus Botanicus share their surplus heat and cold, with large energy-saving results.

As of this year, both National monuments will be forever linked.
