The Netherlands

The Energiesprong network in The Netherlands is called ‘Stroomversnelling’ and originated from the earlier government funded Dutch innovation programme called Energiesprong, which aimed to create Net Zero Energy buildings on a large scale in the Netherlands. In 2013, Energiesprong brokered the “Stroomversnelling” deal between Dutch building contractors and housing associations to refurbish 111,000 homes to NZE. Two years later, Stroomversnelling became a market initiative designed to take NZE to the next level.

The Stroomversnelling network consists of contractors, component suppliers, housing providers, local governments, financiers, DSOs and other parties. Its objectives are to reduce the renovation costs of NZE refurbishments, increase occupants’ acceptance of these renovations and increase the momentum and pace of growth in the NZE housing market itself.
