Eco house doctor
The Eco-house doctor is an ongoing programme of the EcoHuis Antwerpen whereby residents of Antwerp with building plans and renovations can come for a free of charge support.
The Passiefhuis-Platform is providing advice to residence (plan-advise), to stimulate passive house standard at local level as well as highly energy efficient house renovations.
Within PassREg, in which the EcoHuis was an important local stakeholder as well as proactively involved in the project to make Antwerp from an aspiring towards a front runner region in Europe, the Eco-house doctor solution was advanced to include better service to residence, access to subsidies and insentives that the city of Antwerp provides has been made easier.
During the support sessions PHP paid attention to provide an independent advise on renewable technologies for the intended building/renovation plans.
The advancement also was done on level of up scaling advise to residents, from one to one level, towards working in groups with those who wants to implement energy renovation measure(s), such as group roof renovations, or group wall insulation and windows replacements, etc. This is to stimulate growth of energy renovations in Antwerp.
