Nijestee searching 'New Energy'

As the largest social housing company in the city of Groningen realizing a sustainable real estate portfolio is not just our responsibility but also our mission. A mission we gladly accept!

We want to offer our tenants the choice to live how and where they want, regardless of their background, age or lifestyle. Now, but also in 2050, when they will probably have very different demands on housing.

Nijestee was founded to provide sufficient, good and affordable housing for residents of the city of Groningen. Energy costs are an increasing part of the total housing costs. We are now reducing these costs through the installation of solar panels, the application of insulation material and the installation of double glazing.

With our current approach, available techniques and partners, we are reaching the limits of what we can achieve. The world is changing rapidly and we see many new developments and techniques, but how do we use them to further reduce energy costs in the future? Think of the development of new techniques, how residents deal with them and the application of smart financial constructions.

To help us realize this, we are looking for innovative partners who are able to think outside of the box and sometimes create radically different solutions. We offer the prospect of a long-term cooperation, new markets and the space and environment where these new concepts can be deployed.

Are you the connecting factor and do you have a creative mindset to realize new ideas and new solutions in cooperation with innovative and established parties? Then we would like to get in touch with you!

Visit and leave your details. Then we'll talk to you soon!
