10 February 2023 Heat scan in Enspijk

During the past few weeks, our fellow villagers could sign up for a free heat scan of their house. DWE has now received 30 registrations. A heat scan is a thermographic picture that shows the differences in temperature and where heat is leaking from the house. In this way we can make visible whether the insulation has been properly installed everywhere, whether there is no unnecessary energy loss and where there is still room for improvement. We were able to use a heat scan camera from Peter Janson. Last week it started to freeze again during the evenings and the weather conditions were almost optimal to carry out the scans. We visited the registered addresses on three evenings. The residents were asked in advance to make preparations in the house: heating at room temperature for 24 hours, closing any ventilation grilles and opening the curtains. Read more here

9 January 2023 Presentation Action Plan to our fellow villagers

The presentation of the Action Plan for a Sustainable Heat Supply for Enspijk took place in La Place and the turnout was large compared to the previous information evenings. More than 70 people were present, including residents of Enspijk and also representatives of the municipality of West Betuwe, the Province of Gelderland, the Water Board and also some interested people from neighbouring villages. There was a lively discussion and many critical questions were asked. The reactions were mainly positive, and support appears to be growing. The DWE working group can now get started with, among other things, additional preparatory measures and fundraising. This month, the Cooperative Sustainable Heat Enspijk will be established.

Working group Enspijk shows plan for Linge Warmte: ‘Huge job, but it can be done’ Publication Omroep Gelderland ‘Will the village of Enspijk become a national example of how the energy transition should be designed? A working group of residents thinks this is possible. But there is still a lot of water flowing through the Linge before that happens, according to the action plan that they are presenting this week. The idea is simple: extract the heat from the Linge in the summer, store it in the soil and use it in the winter to heat the approximately 180 houses in the center of the village. Some preliminary studies show that this is a good way to make Enspijk’s heat supply sustainable.’
