Some 50 international partners of Energiesprong gathered in Nottingham, UK during 24 and 25 October 2017 to share good practice and discuss the development of the Energiesprong concept. Energiesprong Market Development Teams from the UK, Netherlands, France and Germany were joined by suppliers and housing associations to showcase the Energiesprong approach to housing retrofit and new build.
Day two centred on Interreg partners and the E=0 project with discussions on ongoing projects surrounding procurement, deliverables, and the Energiesprong business case.
Ron van Erck, Head of International Development Energiesprong, opened the day with a thorough explanation of monitoring protocols followed by inspirational sessions from various countries on stakeholder engagement.
Delegates then visited ten demonstrator Energiesprong houses commissioned by Nottingham City Homes in the Sneinton area of Nottingham. This site, a UK first, was a hive of activity with delegates observing cranes swinging large insulation panels into place. The visit focused on construction management with opportunities for detailed discussions with the solution provider.
The day concluded with a creative and interactive session on communicating the Energiesprong concept to housing associations from Energiesprong Germany.
