KuneVerda for municipalities
KuneVerda provides more than a stack of paper!
KuneVerda is specialized in sustainable solutions. Through co-operation with renowned companies, KuneVerda provides the link between consultancy & advice and real life implementation & exploitation of durable, sustainable solutions. Where other companies just provide an advice, KuneVerda provides project management and, with a sound business case, participation in the proposed projects.
KuneVerda is founded by Ed van Dort and André van der Zwaan to support municipalities on the difficult road to meeting the Paris requirements.
Abandonment of natural gas for households
One of the goals to achieve is the complete abundance of natural gas for households. Besides application of solar energy, wind energy and where possible thermal energy and heat pumps, abandoning natural gas introduces the need for a complete new distribution network and intense renovation of houses. A rough estimates now comes to no less than € 40.000 to € 50.000 per household. An innovative and effective approach is needed.
Household solar power and electric vehicles
The introduction of large-scale solar power in urban environments requires re-engineering of the electric power network, enabling vast amounts of energy to flow back in to the system. At the same time the increase of the number of electric vehicles introduces a problem due to heavy peak loads in the electrical system (f.i.during the evening hours). The current system is not able to accommodate these fluctuation. Again an innovative and effective approach is needed.
Reduction of local (commuting) traffic
The introduction of electric vehicles is a solution for environmental emissions but does not contribute to a reduction of congestion. New forms of public transport and commuter transportation are necessary to improve traffic flows and optimize the use of valuable (city)space.
Some of our solutions
Innovations in Public transport
To achieve a relevant reduction of regional traffic, a fine grained public transport network is essential. KuneVerda supports innovative new public transport concepts; full electric buses, small footprint roller coaster technology based cabin transport, monorail etc.. Of course it is essential that the users of the network are able to park their vehicle (bicycle or electric vehicle) nearby the public transport stops. Innovative parking solutions are part of the KuneVerda approach
Alternatives for commuting
With the LEF® full electric vehicle you drive comfortably, dry and 100% free of emissions from and to your work. The LEF® is not only environmently friendly but is also reducing traffic load on your infrastructure as the LEF® travels on bicycle paths. Travelling with the LEF® is not only comfortable but also very economical at just € 0,003 costs per kilometer.
KuneVerda introduces LEF® sharing programs as well as supportive promotion of the LEF® in your municipality. In close cooperation with City Business Events in Brielle maintenance of LEF® is easy and at very low-cost.
KuneVerda cooperates with Bongo Solar to provide full implementation of solar energy solutions ranging from individual solar panels on home roofs to industrial applications and solar farms.
Besides for generating electricity, KuneVerda is also involved in heat generation with the use of solar boilers.
An important source of electric power, ranging from local windmills to windpower farms at sea. KuneVerda assist with the consultancy procedures and provides integration of personal, local and regional windmill power production. Through our vast network in installation companies KuneVerda is capable of assisting in the building and integration of windpower solutions on land, in sea and for personal use.
Some areas in the Netherlands (and other countries) have huge amount of thermal heat available at an explorable depth. KuneVerda has the expertise to create a business model around recovery and distribution of the natural and environmental friendly source of energy. Maybe a combination of thermal heat with residual heat from industry might just be a solution for your municipality!
Power to Gas
Wind and solar energy have one major disadvantage; the power produced is often not in balance with the needed power at the time. Power to Gas provides a solution. Although the yield is only 35% when converting electricity to gas and back to electricity again, power to gas avoids 'throwing away' surplus of energy from wind and solar sources. When the surplus is converted to SNG (Substitute Natural Gas), the natural gas network can be kept active in specific areas. KuneVerda has the expertise to create a solid business model around Power to Gas solutions.
