2. Context

Energiesprong is an approach to delivering net zero energy retrofit of homes at scale, financed by savings and with performance guaranteed.

Dutch for ‘Energy Leap’, it was developed by the Dutch Government with their housing and construction industries between 2010 and 2017.  The Netherlands has the same carbon reduction targets as those set by the UK Climate Change Act, requiring a zero-emission building stock by 2050.  They realised that a radically different approach to the measure by measure, grant funded norm was needed. Delivery rates had to go up, and costs had to come down to enable financing without public subsidy.

The key principles of the Energiesprong approach are:

  • net zero in one go: whole house, super-efficient thermal wrap with renewable energy generation, storage and heating;
  • guaranteed actual performance: annual net zero energy, comfort every day and affordable bills;
  • offsite manufacturing: industrialisation for quality, cost reduction and minimal onsite disruption;
  • retrofit cost financed by guaranteed long term energy and maintenance savings;
  • affordable, grid friendly electrification: 90% carbon reduction now, zero carbon as the grid decarbonizes.

Energiesprong UK is an independent, 100% publicly funded not for profit organisation.  Our mission is to adapt the Dutch approach for the UK and develop a volume market that can deliver net zero energy retrofit and new build, at scale without public subsidy. We support landlords, supply chain, Governments and opinion formers and work closely with our sister Energiesprong teams in NL, FR, DE & IT.
