Desirable, comfortable and affordable homes for everyone, for life. We are an independent market development team setting a new standard for comfortable, super energy efficient refurbishments (and new built solutions) with guaranteed performance. We also introduce a new financing approach and we work with governments to improve regulations for these solutions. This, to ensure people can get a home that not only fits our time, but is ready for our future.
Energiesprong is a revolutionary multiple award winning, 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 market. The 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.
Annualy, a Net Zero Energy house generates sufficient energy to heat the house, provide hot water and power its household appliances. A refurbishment comes with a 30-year performance warranty on both the indoor climate and the energy performance. Money normally spent on energy bills and maintenance work pays for the upgrade. This way, residents get a refreshed, warm and comfortable home at the same (or lower) cost of living.
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.
Energiesprong attracted three European funding lines contributing to executing this international expansion: A Horizon 2020 project, completed on 28/2/19, (3.6 mln) and two Interreg North-West Europe projects: E=0 (5.4 mln) and Mustbe0 (11 mln).
Energiesprong is on an award-winning streak. In 2018 Energiesprong won the World Green Building Council award and Nottingham’s Energiesprong homes won the UK Housing Award and Shift Award. In 2019 Energiesprong´s E=0 and Transition Zero projects won the EU Sustainable Energy Award while Energiesprong UK won the prestigious Ashden Award. In the same month solution provider Melius Homes won a Construction News Awards for its Energiesprong retrofits in Nottingham.

- Developing and implementing retrofits for first 30 demonstrators (UK, FR, LUX)
- Analysing performance of first demonstrators (UK, FR, LUX)
- Developing an industrial incubator for innovating on the technical retrofit solutions
- Sharing knowledge between partners and focus on expansion into Germany
