Neighbourhood approach

Photovoltaic production in the neighbourhood and EV charging stations are considered in the simulations of the demo. The ‘social beautiful’ concept has brought together social housing by Area, the municipality of Uden, social care by Labyrint and the developer Hendriks Coppelmans.

A group of tenant ambassadors were identified in the design phase to lead community building activities and create a dynamic social environment. They will also be responsible for raising awareness and guiding the community about the SPEN concept.
