Podcast: sustainable business models under the microscope #2

News item -

ABN AMRO wants to help its clients become more sustainable. That’s why Arnold and Jimmy discuss a different aspect of the energy transition every month in their podcast ‘The expert and the novice’. Jimmy Lange is incredibly curious, but his knowledge of physics and chemistry leave much to be desired. Fortunately, Arnold Mulder (Energy sector banker at ABN AMRO) can explain it all in great detail.

Today they’re talking about geothermal energy. Huh? ‘Geo’ means ‘earth’, ‘thermal’ means ‘heat’ – heat from the earth. We can use this heat for many things, such as heating buildings, allowing us to reduce our use of non-renewable energy, like natural gas. In the future, we will be able to generate half the energy we use from geothermal sources. But why ‘in the future’ – why not now? Spoiler alert: it’s hard to match up supply and demand. Arnold enlightens us in this 13-minute podcast. In Dutch only.

Smarter and more sustainable

ABN AMRO wants to help its clients become more sustainable. One way we’re doing this is by financing sustainable initiatives in the energy transition, such as harnessing geothermal heat. This is how we hope to contribute to a smarter and more sustainable world through clean energy production – one of ABN AMRO’s key goals in the field of innovation for the coming years.
