City-zen: Retrofitting homes

Featured image

On our way to become a natural gas free city, many residential buildings in Amsterdam need to be retrofitted. In City-zen the most ambitious ones were granted subsidy.

City-zen was an international consortium, a program stimulating learning-by-doing in Grenoble and Amsterdam between March 2014 and November 2019. The results can be found in a booklet or in detailed reports.

Read our interviews with some of the individual home-owners:

Funding for collaborative sustainable initiatives (IN DUTCH)

Subsidie voor collectieve duurzame initiatieven

Bewoners, ondernemers en maatschappelijke organisaties die met elkaar initiatieven ontwikkelen om de stad duurzamer te maken, kunnen vanaf donderdag 12 mei subsidie aanvragen bij de gemeente.

Het gaat om initiatieven die passen binnen de thema’s uit de Agenda Duurzaamheid: duurzame energie & energiebesparing, circulaire economie, slim & schoon vervoer en de klimaatbestendige stad.

De subsidie is bedoeld om initiatieven voor te bereiden, bijvoorbeeld om samenwerking tot stand te brengen, te onderzoeken welke maatregelen het meest effectief zijn, voor de financiële onderbouwing of om draagvlak te realiseren voor de uitvoering.

Als collectieve initiatieven slagen brengen ze de stad in beweging en maken ze duurzaamheid concreet. Iedereen kan zo een bijdrage leveren om de eigen omgeving te verduurzamen.

De subsidie

Voor dit jaar is € 125.000,- beschikbaar. De subsidieregeling maakt onderscheid tussen kleine aanvragen (tot € 5000,-) en grote aanvragen (tot 15.000,-).


U kunt bijvoorbeeld denken aan het voorbereiden van een gemeenschappelijke, decentrale energievoorziening (zon, warmte) in een buurt of het realiseren van het principe 'Afval is grondstof' op een bedrijventerrein. Initiatieven die zich alleen richten op onderzoek en het verwerven van kennis komen niet voor subsidie in aanmerking.


Wilt u een mogelijke aanvraag bespreken? Stuur dan een mail naar <>.
