Campus Amsterdam # Kick off Knowledge Network

Featured image

What are the most pressing questions of the Innovation Districts in and around Amsterdam? What challenges do Campuses, Labs and Hubs face?

On November 15th, each of the districts of Campus Amsterdam will have the opportunity to pitch three of their most important issues. This input will be taken along in research by several Knowledge Institutions. A Win-Win!

This event at the HvA Studio, Wibautstraat 2 connects researchers and the people of the Campus Amsterdam districts. Join in if you're one of them!

Job Opening at Amsterdam Smart City: program manager energy transition 32 hours/week

City-zen, a European consortium working together on clean energy solutions for cities, started in 2015 and is continuing until the end of 2019. Now that a large share of the innovative projects in Amsterdam and Grenoble is (being) realized, it is time to embed the acquired knowledge in a strategic and structural way. We are looking for a program manager who will be the ambassador and local coordinator of City-zen Amsterdam in this final stage.

Find the vacancy (in Dutch) on the site of the Amsterdam Economic Board.

Let’s check: is the energy use of our renovated buildings really improving?

Insulation, solar panels, HR glazing and new installations. All over Europe the existing building stock gets updated to become NZEB, a (Nearly) Zero Energy Building. We’d like to know whether these renovations live up to their expectations and which investments are the smartest. Therefore we monitor the energy performance of all buildings within the framework of the City-zen project.

In 2016, DNV GL began investigating the energy performance of the renovated buildings in Amsterdam. The so-called monitoring. This monitoring consists of determining the monthly energy performance for at least one year. We looked at electricity and gas consumption, and the performance of any solar panels. At the beginning of January 2018 there are 48 active addresses where energy data are recorded.

Good results for first two blocks
From 18 addresses, data is available for a whole year. These are a block with rental apartments (huurcomplex 1) and a former school transformed into apartments (verbouwde school nr huizen 5). The energy performance of these blocks is also known for years before the renovation. This can be compared to determine the savings achieved. For the former school this is not relevant as the use has changed quite a lot.

For the Huurcomplex 1, the measures were:
• A PV system of 139 kWp on the roof
• Thorough insulation of the houses
• High efficiency boiler

The results are a building bound energy consumption of 44 kWh/m2yr. This is a saving of about 71% compared to pre-refurbishment situation.

For the Verbouwde school naar huizen 5, the measures were:
• Good insulation
• Solar panels on their own roof (22.5 kWp) and on a neighbouring roof (30 kWp)
• Heating via heat pumps
• LED lighting
• Demand-controlled ventilation with direct current (energy-efficient) fans.

The result is an building related energy consumption of only 9 kWh/m2yr which is almost energy neutral.

More details and graphs are provided in the Dutch article.

Next steps
During 2018 and 2019 more projects will be followed and the monitoring results will be shared. Moreover, Delft University of Technology will look into the link between the actual energy use and the way residents perceive their neighbourhood, sustainability, innovation and their own behaviour. We expect some interesting results from this comparison.

Energy Transition Roadmap Amsterdam

Featured image

Wat is de lokale energiepotentie van de metropoolregio Amsterdam?

Amsterdam heeft zich als doel gesteld om CO2-neutraal en aardgasvrij te worden, in lijn met de Parijs-akkoorden. Om succesvol te zijn in het halen van deze klimaatambities, moeten we nu starten. De Roadmap is het masterplan voor een duurzaam energiesysteem voor de metropool Amsterdam. Andy van den Dobbelsteen, hoogleraar Climate Design & Sustainability, presenteert de Roadmap met praktische voorbeelden uit lokale buurten en toont de verschillende scenarios in het realiseren van ambitieuze klimaatdoelstellingen.

“CO2-neutraal en aardgasvrij worden, in lijn met de Parijs-akkoorden.” Dat is echter makkelijker gezegd dan gedaan. Amsterdam is een stad met een grote variatie aan wijken gebouwd in verschillende tijdsperioden, die elk om een specifieke benadering vragen. Voor de duurzame energietransitie zijn ingrijpende maatregelen nodig, zoals vergaande energierenovaties, uitleg van nieuwe warmtenetten en grootschalige productiefaciliteiten voor zonnestroom, geothermie en groen gas. Dit vraagt om harde keuzes, een strakke planning en doortastende aanpak. Het nieuwe college mag er na 21 maart meteen mee aan de slag. Om de transitie tot een succes te maken, met een verbetering van de leefkwaliteit van Amsterdam, moeten politiek, overheid, bedrijven en burgers nauw samenwerken.

Vanuit het Europese onderzoeksproject City-zen is gewerkt aan een routekaart (‘Roadmap’) die kan helpen bij deze Amsterdamse energietransitie.

Met in dit programma onder anderen:
Andy van den Dobbelsteen (TU Delft), Jasper Groen (GroenLinks), Ilse Wissink (Energy Exchange Enablers), Otto Reinstra (Waternet), Ilse Koreman (Groene Grachten) , Ingrid Houtepen (Stichting !WOON)
