SummaryThe World Wild Fund initiated this project with the goal to achieve a very low energy consumption in terrace houses. According to the Dutch Housing Laws an energy performance (EPc) = 1,2 is obliged, while the houses here achieve an EPc of 0,75. The houses have very well insulated shelter with a low U-value and a heat recovery system. Solar collectors for domestic hot water and a four square meters solar modules are integrated into the roofs. A PV-roof tile system named RBB 700 was choosen as it fitted best to the black curved roofs. Each system is approx. 0.4 kWp.
