Saving energy together


Together with our customers, we are always looking for new ways to save energy. To this end, we develop various forms of cooperation and participation.

Heijplaat will become more efficient

The Rotterdam city district Heijplaat will become more sustainable and will ultimately make use of natural energy sources such as the sun, wind and water. The objective is to become an energy-neutral district. We are one of the partners that are helping the district to achieve this. The plans for the sustainable metamorphosis were initiated by society, by the residents themselves. The initiative received a ‘WWF Leaders for a Living Planet’ award. This is an international award from WWF for individuals, organisations and institutions that have made an important contribution to nature conservation and promoting sustainable development.

LED lighting: a source of energy efficiency for municipalities

Our activities in the area of public lighting continue to expand. LED lighting is energy efficient and saves costs. CityTec, part of Joulz, offers municipalities an interesting business case. As a result, a number of municipalities made the switch to LED lighting, including Rijswijk, Rotterdam, Vlaardingen and Wijk bij Duurstede. For the provinces of Friesland and Zuid-Holland, we are carrying out replacement projects and test projects.
