About us

Grasrijk_dec2014-8478Municipal Heating Foundation Eindhoven (Stichting Stadsverwarming Eindhoven) is an initiative of the working group Municipal Heating Meerhoven. This working group has been active since 2012 in the Meerhoven district of Eindhoven. Since the same problems with municipal heating are experienced in other Eindhoven neighbourhoods, it has been decided to set up a foundation that represents the interests of all users of municipal heating in Eindhoven.

The foundation was founded on December 22, 2015. By joining forces in a foundation, legal costs can be limited and residents in different neighbourhoods will not have to reinvent the wheel.

The board of the foundation consists of Ruben Trieling (chair/secretary), Geert van Buul (treasurer) en Kees Verhagen (general board member). All are living in Eindhoven.

Municipal Heating Foundation Eindhoven stands up for the interests of users of municipal heating in the municipality of Eindhoven. Users include all current / former owners, tenants, occupants and users of homes and buildings that use municipal heating as well as other persons and institutions that use municipal heating. The foundation seeks to achieve its goal by conducting (collective) actions and claiming damages both in and out of court for persons or entities as referred to above.

The ‘rules of the game’ within the foundation are laid down in the Statutes (in Dutch).
