About us

Our mission is to actively contribute to a sustainable energy supply. The basis is our experience and expertise in the area of renewable heating systems. Renewable heat, especially solar heat, will be indispensible in realizing a fully sustainable energy supply. For this, it is also essential that the heat is available all year round. Compact thermal energy storage system can enable this. With this, solar heat will no longer be only available in summer, and a fully sustainable heat provision for the built environment will come within reach.

We advise companies, research institutes and public authorities that, like us, strive for a sustainable energy supply. We support our customers in their ambitions through increasing the knowledge about the possibilities of renewable heat, through stimulating the awareness and through research and development projects.

We are always well informed about the latest developments in the areas of policy, market and technology, through our active role in the European Technology Platform for Renewable Heating and Cooling (RHC-ETP), and Holland Solar, the Dutch trade association for solar energy, amongst others. Next to that, we are also responsible for the co-ordination (‘operating agent’) of Task42 of the Solar Heating and Cooling program of the International Energy Agency (IEA).
