SummaryA double residence has been built in the new housing district Nieuwland in the city of Amersfoort, where the annual energy consumption is fully covered by aan integrated solar energy system. One of the semi-detached houses was for some years used as an Information Centre for sustainable energy, the other house was (and now both houses are) used as (test) houses for normal habitation. The houses are low-energy houses ('energy-performance of 0.56), while the energy roofs are producing sufficient energy on a yearly average to fullfil the energy demand of the houses.
