Company Page Dutch WindWheel
The Dutch WindWheel architects contribute with their projects for local energy production (including the EWICON technology, solar and residual heat, and heat exchange), a closed water system, the development of a smart grid, smart skin and an integrated smart city concept and the use of materials and as well as IoT based technologies to enhance the experience and attraction value of the Dutch Windwheel and its environment.
All these ‘products’ will be tested and developed in the Rotterdam Region, using fieldlabs like the Green Village in Delft and the Merwe Vier Harbor in Rotterdam.
Over the last decade sustainable urban (re)development has been dominated by bottom-up initiatives that one for one have huge direct and indirect impact on the social, ecological and economic performance of our cities. The Dutch Windwheel is a mega project that seeks to achieve the same goal but with a radically alternative approach and process. The project explores how tourism and iconic sustainable architecture can jump-start and positively impact on district development.
Sixteen companies and research institutes have joined forces to develop the Dutch Windwheel. These organizations are all working on a program, aiming to combine, scale and market all kinds of promising technical innovations at the nexus of water, energy, and building technology.
