Rotterdam Case studyRotterdam (The Netherlands)

Coordinators: TNO, VABI

Description: Large parts of the city of Rotterdam has been rebuilt after the Second World War according to the standards of the 1950’s-1970’s. As many of these houses are facing the end of their life cycle, and the Municipality of Rotterdam wants to create a livelier and more attractive city, plans for sustainable densification and greenification are concretised now. As part of these plans, the Municipality of Rotterdam is developing plans with housing corporation Havensteder to make their housing stock more energy efficient by retrofitting and possibly renewal. The information needs of stakeholders during different phases of development of these plans are an interesting case for the development of integrated decision tools in ECODISTR-ICT.

Topics: Legislation, energy policy, living costs
