Energy Efficient Buildings

One of the key elements in the energy transition is to make buildings energy efficient or even energy neutral. The construction sector, traditional as it may look, needs up-to-date know-how and work processes for making this possible.
TechToBizz has developed dedicated training programs and has coached many different projects for energy saving. The key subjects in our approach were the system architecture aspects in energy saving and most of all the Integral Cooperation between the partners.

As in other sectors, complex innovations require an effective integral cooperation between multiple stakeholders, disciplines, teams and organisations. We used our experience in project management for the high-tech sector, where multidisciplinary and multisite teams are common, to support the construction sector.

A summary of our projects is below.

We developed a training course with best practices as well as Innovation Management tools and theory for OTIB.

The city of Eindhoven has the ambition to be energy-neutral in 2045. In an event, organized by the city of Eindhoven in 2014, TechToBizz has presented the Integral Cooperation as an enabler for this program. The presentation (in Dutch) is available on video.

Stichting KIEN has been active in the past years in projects for developing energyneutral environments. This typically has been done in integral projects with citizens, companies and municipalities. TechToBizz has supported the KIEN projects in Geldermalsen, Rotterdam and Tilburg with the the Integral Cooperation approach.

Duurzaam MOED, a regional organisation for the energy transition, has done a pilot for a new training for energy specialists. This new training includes various system architecture subjects. TechToBizz supported this pilot with know-how and contacts from previous projects.

The TechToBizz activities in the area of energy saving in the built environment are currently ongoing with projects for implementing Integral Cooperation and Energy Specialist elements in the curriculum of education programs at public and private education institutes.
