The Energy Academy Europe

EAE is the most environmentally sustainable school building in the Netherlands. All sources of natural renewable energy are used in an innovative way in a solar fireplace, a winter garden, an atrium and an air maze.

Located on the Zernike campus in Groningen, in the north of the Netherlands, the EAE is an institution where industry, education and research come together to innovate in the field of energy. A large central atrium connects the two programmatic halves of the structure that includes classrooms and laboratories on one side and offices on the other.

The two-level floors share common bridges where people can meet and look out onto the atrium, turning it into the heart of the building, bringing together researchers, employees, lab staff and students.Sustainability has been the basis of design from the first moment, based on Broekbakema’s philosophy "inspired by nature, fueled by people". In a 200 m walkable labyrinth below the building, the earth is used to pre-cool or pre-heat the fresh ventilation air. A solar chimney at the top of the roof creates a natural airflow through the structure, pulling fresh air from the winter garden through the maze.

The innovative roof covering the building allows maximum exploitation of light and lighting using 100% of its surface. In fact, 50% of the roof is covered by vertical and inclined photovoltaics. While the remainder is used to filter light and allow lighting during the day.
