Welcome to Stronghouse's website. Stronghouse is a project co-funded by the North Sea Region Programme 2014 - 2020.

Energy transition

Stronghouse aims at sustainable housing for strong communities As part of the energy transition, Stronghouse analyses and redesigns measures to motivate and facilitate homeowners – individually and on a neighbourhood level – to invest in energy renovation/retrofitting their homes.

Enabling energy renovation

Stronghouse engages, enables and empowers homeowners and neighbourhoods to invest and reduce the environmental footprint of their homes. Stronghouse wants to support homeowners in their journey from initial interest, to planning, financing and contracting energy renovation. Therefore, Stronghouse develops, adjusts and redesigns measures that enable homeowners to invest, to organize scale and to gain access to services and products.

Focus on homeowners

This innovative focus on homeowner concerns reduces the footprint of 15,000 homes, generates a 100 million euro investment and 25 kiloton CO2 reduction. Stronghouse starts by analyzing existing instruments on their impact. By sharing, (re-)organizing and enhancing them with complementary tools, Stronghouse raises their impact and delivers four, related support measures:

  1. Instruments and tools that enable individual homeowners to invest in energy efficiency and renewable energies

  2. A neighbourhood-approach to organizing the necessary scale and drivers to invest

  3. Market access for regional SMEs specialized in energy renovation for individual homeowners

  4. Adoption strategies for implementing these instruments, approach and market access
