Launch of the Green Village

Yesterday, on June 7, 2012 we officially launched the Green Village in the presence of His Royal Highness Prince Carlos Bourbon de Parme and Paul Rullman, member of the Executive Board of TU Delft. This will be the laboratory where we test out new ideas, check out the practical implications of some of our assumptions, and work out the kinks in our plans for the bigger Green Campus. Above all, the Green Village will be a place to meet like-minded students and researchers, and give industrial partners the opportunity to connect with them.

The preliminary steps in the construction of the Green Village will start in the coming months. Within less than two years, the Green Village should feature housing and workspaces for dozens of people, in addition to a hotel, café, shops, and EV charging points. It will also be completely autarkic!

    Interesting, innovative ideas for your Green Village you can find in the #greentalent competition of Imtech, such as
    1) Green Talent Martien Pieters: How to reduce energy use with ‘Karma presence induced heating’
    2) Green Talent Gerald Lindner: How to reduce building energy waste and materials with a house logbook
    If you ‘Like’ them today (8th June) your vote is worth Euro 1 for the PifWorld Foundation and you’ll support e.g. an SOS children’s village in Nigeria to make it greener!
