Transition Zero project

Transition Zero project

For around 3 years, the Transition Zero project has supported the scaling up of the Energiesprong (‘Energy leap’) model originated in the Netherlands. This model is a high-value construction and investment model for creating energy-neutral homes and regenerating neighbourhoods through a whole house ‘envelope’ retro-fitting package. Based on the use of prefabricated panels for renovation, the use of renewable energy and a guarantee of net zero for consumers, the Energiesprong approach is now applied in the UK and France.

 
As the H2020 project Transition Zero comes to an end in December 2018, it is time to reflect on what has been done and what are the next steps to make it an even more successful approach to a fair energy transition in the EU. More generally it will be a unique occasion to discuss innovative approaches to mass-scale renovation and decarbonisation of the building stock, in the light of the article 2 of the EPBD.

Roundtable with EU policy makers

Three foundations of Energiesprong’s approach:

  1. Moving from craftmanship to industrialisation and mass customisation
  2. Long year performance guarantee
  3. Transform efficiency measures into desirable, modern living solutions to compel consumers

Should policy play a role in driving these elements?
