Net energy generating homes
Net energy generating living aims for a self-sufficient residential district. That is to say that the district generates all the energy it consumes.

In fact, more energy than is needed for heating, hot water and all electrical equipment in and around the house. The residents can use the extra energy for example to charge their electric car. It is important that the surplus energy is stored and shared with other residents, so that no energy is lost and there is always enough energy available for every single household within the district. Every house has its own circular home battery. These batteries are collected to a collective ‘smart grid’, in which the residents can share energy throughout the district. Using smart software, ‘off-grid’ demand and supply are matched the best way possible. By clever matching of generation, storage and consumption the district is fully self-sufficient in terms of energy. In this clip director René Beks talks about the houses.

The feasibility of the proposal is currently being investigated. If the outcome is positive, the proposal may well become a reality.

The urban vision developed by UNStudio features a number of strips running from north to south that divide the area into several zones, each with a different building density. Shared facilities can be created in the district, such as kitchens, gardens, reading rooms and gyms. There will also be a mix of residential and work, with decentralised business space with offices and shared work spaces aimed at innovative collaborations. In the heart of the district will be a park of some 12 hectares with gardens, natural landscape and sports grounds. The park will be collectively owned by the users: everybody can become a member. At the fringes of the districts there will be 80 hectares for growing food (high-tech agriculture), water storage, nature and energy generation.

TU/e students collaborating in ‘team CASA’ are designing and developing a house that will be constructed as a concept in Brandevoort, as a BSD example. CASA stands for Comfortable, Affordable and Sustainable Alternative for Housing in the Netherlands. In September/October 2019 the house, which contains three units, will be built in a short time in the new part of Brandevoort, the district that will be created following BSD principles, which the house of the students is fully compliant with.
