Innovative solutions for pioneering projects

Featured projects

Projects that we did:

Water+Energy System for a Circular Cemetary Building

We successfully completed an installation concept for a fully circular cemetary building. Since the surrounding forest area leaves no space for solar PV, we had to come up with alternate solutions, such as 4th-gen biomeiler system hooked up to a hybrid heat pump.

Energy System Design Tuinen van Zandweerd

For a soon-to-be-realised project development in Deventer, we helped Woonpioniers improve their tender submission by coming up with a highly sustainable energy system design. It includes a heating system that draws its heat from the local wastewater treatment facility.

Design Contest Biobased Construction Oirschot

We participated in a tender for the creation of a 400-household biobased project development in Oirschot. Even though we did not make the final selection, many interesting ideas were conceptualised during the process, together with Woonpioniers and HNS (among others).

Building Automation Market Research

Smart Homes are the future, but it’s easy to lose the forest for the trees with all the different technologies out there. We helped Lister Buildings define and design their needs for system integration and select the right building automation partner.

Water+Energy System Brainport Smart District

In Helmond a new area development is rising with the aim of becoming ‘the world’s smartest district’, known as Brainport Smart District. We advised Lister Buildings on their energy and water system design for a 60-dwelling appartment complex.

Solar Carport Aardehuizen with Battery Storage

We helped develop a solar carport park, with a 70 kWp solar PV for the inhabitants of the Aardehuizen. A battery installation will store energy during the day.

Energy System Design of an Earthship

An Earthship is a Zero Energy Building (ZEB), that produces as much energy as it consumes. It is made from recycled and environmentally friendly materials such as used car tyres and straw bales. We analysed the energy performance and improved the overall energy system design.

Projects our team members were involved in

The following projects we were involved in while working for previous companies as employees:

De Ceuvel Aquaponics System

De Ceuvel is a so-called cleantech playground where many different (and often low-tech) technologies are being experimented with. The aquaponics system developed here provides both fish, vegetables and herbs, while recycling the valuable nutrients of each of them.

Solar Carport with Vehicle-2-Grid charging

The solar carport in EVA-Lanxmeer was one of the very first of its kind. Featuring 700 solar panels with a combined output of over 200 kWp, this carport can charge many different EV’s simultaneously. It also features Vehicle-2-Grid (V2G) Charging, to help stabilise the grid.

New Sanitation: vacuum toilets with nutrient recovery

New Sanitation is a new type of wastewater collection that uses suction instead of water to flush toilets. The resulting concentrated black water is very well suited to recover the phosphates and nitrates within. A biodigester can then produce biogas from the remainder.

Schoonschip Smart Grid

SchoonSchip has pioneered a unique smart grid that is connected behind a single meter connection. Batteries, solar panels and heat pumps work together to create an effective local energy distribution system that allows them to save on connection costs and balance the grid.

New Strategies for SIDE Systems

In this now world-famous study, four of The Netherlands’ most advanced eco-neighbourhoods were assessed on the performance of their energy system. By creating improved scenario’s, it was found that over 90% self-sufficiency was techno-economically viable.
