In order to achieve the Paris climate agreement target, the Netherlands’ energy supply must be almost completely sustainable by 2050. But how do you execute the energy transition to meet the target as a local council, housing association or home-owners’ association manager?
To lend a helping hand SBLC introduces Cuby, the implementation support application. Cuby imports relevant building data from various public data sources.
With this data, Cuby helps you gain insight into your neighbourhood, street or building’s sustainability options and associated transition costs.
In addition to data from existing public data sources, Cuby also uses unique data as supplemented by SBLC – for example, the surface area of the façade, roof and façade openings. This allows Cuby to accurately calculate your energy transition costs.
Cuby offers you more than just insight at city and neighbourhood levels: its data analysis is so detailed that understanding sustainability and energy consumption reduction is possible even at street and building levels.
Cuby is extremely user-friendly due to its clear system and structure. After a brief introduction, anyone can get started right away, Selections or filters made can be saved per project. This makes working with Cuby highly efficient.
In addition to providing insight into real estate data, Cuby also directly calculates the indicative transition costs per intervention. This makes it much easier to make choices and put your chosen policies into practice.

The use of energy coaches is a valuable strategy to include individual homeowners in the energy transition. But how do you motivate the residents?
The New Effective Step-by-Step Plan for Energy Coaches can help them with this.
Energy coaches are an important tool in the transition to sustainable homes. They have a bridge function towards residents. The challenge for energy coaches is to be able to make the sustainability options really concrete for residents.
An energy coach who is well prepared can really make the difference.
The Dutch Association for Sustainable Energy advocates tackling entire neighborhoods at once instead of per home. That is indeed much needed. But how do you shape that in your Neighborhood Implementation Plan in which you deal with home owners, executive companies and subsidy providers?
With Earth Valley to the Intergeo 2022 in Germany
SBLC explores the approach to the energy transition in Germany on a trade mission from Earth Valley to the Intergeo fair in Essen. The conclusion is that there are opportunities for Cuby, particularly in the Ruhr area, with a focus on reducing the CO2 footprint of homes.
Report of the meeting
On Thursday 26th of January, SBLC was one of the ten companies that were allowed to participate in the theme market "Digital tools for the expiry of citizen participation in the energy transition" of Province of Overijssel.
It was an extremely inspiring meeting.
Unfortunately, in recent weeks, the news and in the newspapers have been talking about nothing but more than the energy crisis. Gas and electricity are unprecedentedly expensive, energy poverty is over and will only increase in the near future. What can the government, companies and individuals do to get through this crisis in the best possible way?
Cuby can help with that!
Although we launched Cuby fairly recently, we are continuously looking and investigating how we can improve Cuby. By maintaining frequent dialogue with our clients, we gain many insights that we want to act on quickly. Our developers have recently delivered some new features.
