SummaryIn cooperation with the Wereld Natuur Fonds (WWF), HBG Vastgoed has developed 77 extremely energy-sparing residences in the Galecop quarter in Nieuwegein. The residences’ so-called EPC is 0.71. The houses have the three characteristics presented in the Third Energy Bill: clean, reliable, affordable. In Galecop, 76 houses have been provided with four solar panels, while keeping a possible increase in amount of panels in the future in mind. A system with a 26-m² surface is integrated in the roof of one residence. This large system serves as an example for the possible expansion of the other systems. The south side of the house has a glass roof, which consists of mainly nontransparent glass and four real transparent windows. At the houses that have four solar panels, the panels are placed on stands above these windows. There they have two functions: generation of electricity and blocking the sunlight.
