Net Zero Energy Housing

Energiesprong is a revolutionary, whole house refurbishment and new built standard and funding approach. It originated in the Netherlands as a government-funded innovation programme and has set a new standard in this marketThe mission of Energiesprong International is to scale this approach to other markets.

Energiesprong uses the social housing sector in each market as the launching market for these solutions, with a view to later scale to the private home-owner market. The independent Energiesprong market development teams aggregate mass demand for high quality retrofits (and new built houses) in a market and creates the right financing and regulatory conditions in parallel. With this in place, solution providers can go into a quick and transformative innovation process to deliver against this new standard.

Currently, Energiesprong teams are active in France, the UK, Germany and New York State.  The independent Energiesprong team (Energiesprong Foundation) drives and coordinates the expansion and works with national delivery teams in each market.
