The challenge

Energy and sustainability

A lot of energy gets lost, especially in the kitchen. Therefore we want to create a way to capture this energy and convert it into new energy.

This can be for example steam vapor and heat from cooking (rinsing the induction hob), heat from the fridge/oven door, air circulation in the extractor hood etc…

The why

Why is this challenge important?

Sustainability and reusable energy is a hot topic. Especially looking at the climate crisis, it is important we learn to reuse energy.

The solution

What outcome are we looking for?

A start towards a self-sufficient system of capturing lost energy and reusing it.


What do we expect from the participants?

Creative, out of the box thinking.


We are looking for:
Students in industrial design, sustainable energy, mechanical/electrical engineering, sustainable innovation, industrial design engineering, industrial ecology, applied physics

About us


DKG is the group behind the successful Dutch brands Bruynzeel Kitchens and Keller Kitchens. We literally make our brands ourselves. We do that at DKG De Keukenfabriek in Bergen op Zoom. That is the beating heart of DKG. But making brands goes further than just the kitchens. We develop, design, sell and install kitchens from two brands. For private and business customers. And we don't just do this for our own brands, we also use our knowledge about kitchens to develop private labels. We do this from DKG Kitchens.
