Eise Spijker, from RES4BUILD partners JIN Climate and Sustainability, has published an article in their newsletter detailing the ongoing work they are organising with a healthcare provider in the Netherlands as part of the project. JIN Climate and Sustainability is a knowledge centre focusing on climate change policy issues in general and the concept of emissions trading in particular. JIN are leading the co-development process of WP4, which is piloting a co-design process for developing IES in buildings by engaging end users from read buildings and introducing their needs in the IES design process.
"On the 21st of November, the RES4BUILD research and innovation project hosted its first stakehodler workshop in the village of Vries, the Netherlands. The workshop was co-organised by RES4BUILD partner JIN Climate and Sustainability and Royal Visio. The workshop was the official kick-off of the collaboration between RES4BUILD and Visio that will run until the end of 2023.
Royal Visio provides health care and education to clients with complex disabilties, and is specialised in treating clients with visual impairments. Within the framework of RES4BUILD, Royal Visio and JIN have teamed up in an effort to: provide the technology and innovation partners in RES4BUILD with feedback from the end-user/buyers' perspective on the feasability of implementing (novel designs for) integrated energy solutions in the built environment; and support Royal Visio in their efforts to develop a robust strategic and operational roadmap for greening their real estate portfolio."
