In the coming years, the municipality of Baarn wants to take big steps with regards to sustainability both for its residents and for its businesses. An integral part of this is the sustainability of business parks within the municipality boundaries. For the immediate future, the municipality of Baarn wants to explore which solutions are technically and financially viable and can count on sufficient support as well. The project will provide sustainable heat for the business parks Noordschil and De Drie Eiken.

One crucial facet of this project is that the solution must be affordable for the average business, and must meet the approval of all stakeholders. Opportunities for nearby synergies are important too; the residential areas of Eemdal and Baarnsche Zoom (currently under construction) are close by. 

Scope TransitionHERO
