Green is good

Energy is hot. It is also an aspect in which most can be won and earned. The expectation of rising energy costs makes it economical to invest in energy efficient methods. We try to follow the trias – energetica as much as possible: minimize on losing energy, for example by making well insulated facades, using intelligent systems with high returns and make users conscious of their behavior. Energy that is still needed after these measures we will try to generate by sustainable sources.

In our new developments, energy efficiency is an important aspect with which we book good results in a relatively easy way. However, by renovating the existing housing stock we can win a whole lot more. Hundreds of thousands of residences and tens of thousands other buildings in the Netherlands have a completely dated energy system. For this reason, the Go Dutch consortium also focuses on projects for the existing housing stock. After all, improving instead of replacing existing housing stock is far more sustainable.
