Welcome on the website of PRESBE. PRESBE is the Platform for Research on Energy for a Sustainable Built Environment. The aim of the platform is to communicate research and provide education about reducing the energy use of the built environment. Members of the platform use different methods to establish this goal like monitoring, testing, experimenting, designing, improving and disseminating. PRESBE is located at the department of Construction Management and Engineering of the University of Twente. The platform is part of the Faculty of Engineering Technology. Members of the platform participate in multiple projects that can contribute to a sustainable built environment. The two main projects that the members participated in are:


Impenetrable infiltration


Throw in the I-drone

Both projects are lighthouse projects, which means that they are supported by 3TU.bouw. 3TU.bouw is a joint initiative of the three universities of technology in the Netherlands.
