The research group is developing knowledge related to the ‘greenification’ of the energy chain in the built environment. Its focus is on system modelling and simulation for energy and indoor climate systems. Models are developed, tested and optimised for practical and educational use and all focus on buildings, greenhouse and otherwise, as well as on energy supply issues in the built environment.

The DC Lab
The place where education and research come together. In the DC-Lab, students and researchers collaborate with each other on various technical challenges in Direct Current. In the DC-Lab, research issues are offered as subprojects to students doing an internship or graduation internship in the DC-Lab. This is done in cooperation with industrial partners.
Energy transition LV
Like all Dutch municipalities, Leidschendam-Voorburg has the task of letting go of the gas grid. Knowledge center Mission Zero was asked to help think about the realization of this issue from multiple perspectives.
Hydrogen Heating Studies
The Dutch government has decided the Netherlands has to phase out (natural) gas by 2050. Switching to all electric heating is not sustainable because of the load that is too high for the electricity grid and the associated high costs. Moreover, electric heating means a large mismatch between energy supply from solar panels in summer and energy demand for heating in winter, which requires energy storage. Heating with sustainably produced hydrogen is an interesting alternative because hydrogen is a storage medium of energy for seasonal bridging.
The TransAct model, lifelong learning in the installation industry
The installation industry is in a constant state of flux. Therefore, lifelong learning is very relevant to professionals in this industry. But how do you shape this? In the project TransAct we research and develop digital tools that can support professionals in co-creation, network learning and collaborative learning. The Sustainable Talent Development research group participates in this NWO-funded project. The faculty of Technology, Innovation and Society (TIS) and the research group Energy in Transition of The Hague University of Applied Sciences are happy to cooperate in this research.
Energy Transition HTM
The Hague may be missing opportunities to make the Energy Transition cheaper and faster. Large roofs and facades of buildings and HTM's existing infrastructure are being used sub-optimally for generation and distribution, respectively. This can be done differently. There is much to gain for the energy transition! This project will therefore investigate the more optimal use of these generation and distribution possibilities. In addition, the possibility of own use of the generated sustainable energy will also be investigated.
B4B Brains for Buildings
Brains 4 Buildings is a multi-year program aimed at developing methods to harness big data from smart meters, building management systems and the Internet of Things to reduce energy consumption, increase comfort, flexibly respond to occupant behavior and local energy supply and demand, and save on plant maintenance costs. This will be done through the development of faster and more efficient Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence models and algorithms. The project focuses on utility buildings, such as commercial and institutional buildings.
