Fossil-free areas

It is a complicated task for any building or for any neighborhood. What should you choose when there are so many options available and everything seems to affect everything else and when you also have to deal with many different interests? Making a building or neighborhood fossil-free requires the right insights and an appropriate strategy. The NEST (for a building) and COLONY (for an entire neighborhood) calculation models from TheEarlybirds offer a clear insight, with the interests of residents and building owners at the forefront!

With our strategies:

  • you save energy costs,
  • you avoid investing thousands to millions of euros in useless building renovations,
  • you reduce CO2 emissions in a cost-effective way,
  • you will save time on finding support from residents/property owners for heat transition visions and implementation plans for fossil-free areas.

Facility and housing manager

“My experience is that making buildings more sustainable is a very complex issue. It is therefore often done from the gut feeling, without any numerical basis.
