KIEN Water & Energy Challenge
The Dutch Housing Corporation Elkien launches the KIEN Water & Energy Challenge. The ambition of Elkien is to have their complete building stocks overall energy neutral in 2030. Therefore, in the upcoming years Elkien will invest in their buildings in order to achieve this ambition.
Looking for new and innovative technologies
However, heated water is still a weak link in becoming energy neutral. Therefore, Elkien is looking for new and innovative technologies and technological concepts that are aiming at energy-efficient and/or energy-neutral domestic heated water supply.
Develop your idea
Winners of the KIEN Water & Energy Challenge will be invited to develop, test and/or demonstrate their technology or technological concept in Kien City lab located in Tolhuizen (Municipality of Leeuwarden, The Netherlands). In Kien City lab Elkien will invest in the development of 24 houses, where these new and innovative technologies will be applied and be used by residents as a pilot.
Submit your idea
In cooperation with the winners of the KIEN Water & Energy Challenge the new and innovative technologies will be assessed technically and economically, in combination with an evaluation with residents. The most feasible and user friendly technologies and technological concepts (maximum 3) will be selected for application in the full building stock of Elkien, currently existing of ca. 20.000 houses. Join the Cahllenge and submit your technology solution before the 27th of April 2017.
