Sustainable sport facility in Hilvarenbeek

24 September 2018 - Sustainable cities and communities (SDG 11), Affordable and clean energy (SDG 7)

A new sustainable sport facility in the municipality of Hilvarenbeek boasts both a swimming pool and a sports hall. BNG Bank provided the required EUR 7 million in funding.

​The building's most remarkable aspect is that it is 'all electric'. In other words, all the energy that the facility needs comes from electricity, with zero gas consumption. While energy is generated via 2,000 solar panels, energy loss is simultaneously prevented wherever possible through effective insulation and the use of LED bulbs. The benefits are significant, as a swimming pool is a major energy consumer. These principles are in keeping with Hilvarenbeek's own sustainability policy as well.
