How do we get from the current situation, with badly insulated houses, to a future with homes without fossile fuels?
100.000 Energy Neutral Homes
What is the goal of the project?
Amsterdam is cutting off natural gas. This has major consequences for all its residents and homeowners. How do we get from the current situation, with badly insulated houses, to a future with homes without fossile fuels? The costs are high and the decisions are many. What are the best options to pursue? What do we need in terms of scale, innovation, knowledge and community engagement to get to 100.000 energieneutral homes?
What is the result of the project?
By working collectively on this issue, Amsterdam Smart City aims to establish an effective collaboration that results in the development of scalable, costeffective building designs that answer to the needs of our residents. We start with the most frequently found housing types. From there we involve a neighbourhood where these housing types are abundant. Together with the residents, the homeowners and professionals we then investigate how to transform these houses in energy neutral homes and translate that into a feasible design.
When we succeed, the resulting building design allow us to ask the following question: how many similar houses do we need to cut costs as to eventually realize 100.000 energy neutral homes?
Who initiated the project and which organizations are involved?
