Kick-start your project with a feasibility scan

What is an energy or water community?

  • Organize energy or water flows among different buildings:
    create extra value by organizing sustainability on a neighborhood level
  • Comply to increased sustainability regulation and standards:
    Increase local resilience and sustainability

    unlock new revenue streams for your company

Designing a local energy or water community starts with a feasibility scan.

  • Investigate Technological, legal and financial framework
  • Define financing and end user tarification
  • Understand opportunities for long term value creation
    • Long term value creation in real estate due to future proof design
    • Steady cash flow generation as shareholder of a Circular Economy Service company.

A sustainable business model

In the heart of every feasibility scan, there is a sustainable business model.
When developing our business model, we translate the added value of sustainability into a long-term service and business model.

In this way long-term benefits, otherwise lost are now valorized.

We were looking for an environmentally friendly home anyway, but in our new residential area, the sustainability exceeds our imagination.
