Essent and NET2GRID jointly deliver a monitoring pilot to housing associations in The Netherlands

Zeist, 15th of September. The new Essent “Wooneffect" service helps housing associations to prepare their housing stock for a sustainable future.

Dutch Housing Associations are obliged to have 2 million homes CO2 neutral by 2050. In the short term, the sector wants to attain an average energy label B for the total stock of social dwellings by 2021. This calls for an acceleration of investment in solar panels, insulation and heating network connections.

In response to this challenge, Essent in collaboration with NET2GRID, has developed a complete energy monitoring service “Wooneffect” designed for housing associations who look to upgrade the energy efficiency of their housing stock. Through this solution Essent looks to maximise benefits across the value chain for tenants and housing associations.
