The Dutch neighourboods must be free of natural gas to achieve the climate goal of ‘Paris’. Privately owned houses are a big challenge in the Netherlands, because the transition demands a lot from the homeowner. The barrier to take action is also diverse: no money, no awareness, no need or no idea what to do, are frequently heard reasons.
That has created the following question: How do you ensure that ‘free of natural gas’ is wanted by a homeowner with a modest income?
Consequences of the problem: Homeowners do nothing or wait too long. The result of this is that the energy transition will take longer and will lead to higher costs (in connection with maintain in).
Develop an innovative solution to provoke(inspire) homeowners to take action to make their homes free of natural gas.
