With 'ENLEB', the aim is to bring homeowners and the construction sector together so that energy efficiency, energy generation and innovation become a common goal. ENLEB has a total budget of 1.5 million and receives half of it as European support. The project started on June 1, 2017 and will run until May 31, 2020.

The partners in the project will conduct research in 9 neighborhoods spread over the Netherlands and Flanders to gain insights into setting up a co-creation process. In the co-creation process, the partners work with companies and citizens to create awareness and ownership and to arrive at technical solutions based on the innovative power of the companies. In addition, various demonstrations and pilots will be conducted on technological product and process innovations, including equipping homes with DC technology, developing a mobile DC unit, using zeolite heating, integrating all ducts and pipes into the architectural shell. .

All information from the previous activities will be bundled and the partners will use this to develop an ENLEB menu. It must become a usable instrument in plain language that residents and organizations can use to make their homes more sustainable. In the menu, both technical and financial aspects are discussed, with attention being paid to the highest possible added value for sustainability in the succession of investments (cost-optimal investments).

The partnership includes 9 organizations from the Netherlands and Flanders: Kamp C, Zonnige Kempen, Thomas More and UCLL on the Flemish side and Maastricht University, Hellas Rectifiers B.V., TIORC cooperative, Avans Foundation and Eindhoven University of Technology.
