22 Jun Energiesprong works
Net zero energy homes in the Netherlands put to the test both on technical performance and customer satisfaction. The performance insights from monitoring over 600 net zero energy retrofits in the Netherlands confirm that, yes, the retrofit and new built approach does perform. Apart from teething problems in the pilot projects, such as a chaotic building process or insufficient airtightness, in general the houses perform as promised and tenants are satisfied with their renovated home. Some homes even perform above expectations and are energy positive whilst tenants are really proud of their new wide windowsills and say it feels like living in an owner-occupied property.
