Is your house participating in the Student Energy Race?

The heating season is coming up again! Do you want to save both money and energy together with your housemates? Then the Student Energy Race (SER) is a challenge for you: an energy saving competition between different student houses in the Netherlands.

What’s in it for you?

  • An energybox with energy saving gadgets
  • Last year houses saved 24% on average while the record was 56%. This is potentially a halving of your energy bill!
  • The best energy savers per city receive monthly prizes, with a main prize in the end.

Duration: November 2018 – February 2019

Keen to participate or looking for more information? Send an email to as soon as possible! Please mention your address, whether your house already has a smart energy meter and – if applicable – your student housing association. Your house can participate if:

  1. 4 till 20 students live in your house
  2. Your house has its own gas and electricity meter

Does your rent already include utility costs such as gas, water and electricity? You have the right to ask money back if you paid too much, so energy saving is also beneficial for you!
