The Dutch EnergieSprong program retrofits existing multi-family housing stock to Net-Zero energy quickly and cost-effectively. The state of New York (through RetrofitNY), and the Department of Energy (through the REALIZE project) have funded several programs to transfer the EnergieSprong approach to the US. Staengl Engineering is working on a project in New York and with the REALIZE project to help implement a similar process for US multi-family buildings. This talk with describe EnergieSprong and report on efforts to implement the approach in the US.
- Understand the Dutch EnergieSprong approach and its Net Zero energy results.
- Identify the differences in the US climate and market that affect implementation of the EnergieSprong approach.
- Understand project implementation and net zero energy goals for a project in Troy, NY
- Understand the transformations that the market will need to go through to realize the net zero energy results provided through the EnergieSprong approach in the United States
