H2O Tiny House - an inspiring meeting space
Project Manager Kees Boer gave his Dutch Stronghouse colleagues a tour, explaining the why and wherefore of this innovative meeting space. Kees is a true ambassador for green hydrogen: “To help create public support for the use of hydrogen as a heating source in the home, the Hydrogen Tiny House is an ideal showcase project. It’s right beside the Erflanden neighbourhood where we plan to retrofit 400 houses, exchanging the current gas boiler for one on H2O."

Hydrogen adoption strategy
Together with partners from Hoogeveen, Stronghouse will demonstrate a hydrogen adoption strategy, creating ownership for homeowners and local enterprises. Here residents can see how the system works. They have the opportunity to ask questions and receive clarification about any doubts they might have regarding the technical aspects. This communication is crucial. Successful implementation depends on complete cooperation with the homeowners and working with all stakeholders in a process of joint design.
A viable alternative
“By demonstrating that hydrogen is a viable alternative energy source in the built environment, the Hydrogen Tiny House contributes to the national and even global challenges we face during the energy transition,” says Kees.
Take a look at this bottom-up neighbourhood approach, what the local residents think about this inspirational project and their transition to H2O as an energy source.
The Hydrogen Tiny House is a collective initiative of the Municipality of Hoogeveen, Alfa College and ‘Vrienden van Techniek Hoogeveen’ (a platform that stimulates regional interaction between companies in the technical sector and educational institutes). It was developed and built together with students from Alfa College,
