Unique landingspot for Energy companies
New landingspot for companies in electrification on former KEMA site called Arnhems Buiten.
Arnhems Buiten is a beautifully landscaped business park with several monumental buildings which house prominent companies and institutions such as the Dutch electricity transmission manager TenneT, the high-quality test labs of Kema, and the international consultancy firm DNV. The captivating park is a contemporary and inspiring work location for (knowledge) institutions and knowledge-intensive companies that work on the current energy transition. Many campus facilities can be found in the park and its immediate vicinity, including meeting & conference facilities, a brasserie, a start-up center, flex spaces, sports facilities, and short-stay housing.
Arnhems Buiten is located near Arnhem Central station which has a direct connection with two international airports (Amsterdam and Dusseldorf). This station is also the mainstation of the highspeed train to Germany and France. The emphasis is on accessibility via sustainable (shared) transportation. Constant investments are made to further strengthen the high-quality green environment and its resilience. The park will be made more sustainable in the coming years with its own energy generation, sustainable installations, and intelligent exchange and balancing systems. The historic buildings will be made more sustainable in phases.
Community Services & Facilities
The central theme is excellence in reliability, service, safety, and appearance. We have the best of both worlds at Arnhems Buiten: interaction between excellent international parties and inspiring new ideas. And all this in an amazing, green environment.
Arnhems Buiten has a significant legacy in R&D, thanks to its KEMA past. The park will be further developed in the coming years, further strengthening the R&D landscape. The R&D focuses on digitizing the components on high- and medium-voltage grids, substations, and the use of open data and AI for, among other things, predictive maintenance, energy exchange, and grid optimization. Investments are made to develop shared facilities. Three buildings in the heart of the campus have been selected for this purpose.
Arnhems Buiten is part of the worldwide well-known Arnhem Energy Hotspot, which is built around Kema since 1927. This includes a big cluster of national and international companies related to electrification, with close cooperations between institutes and universities. They all have access to test and validationlabs and demofields and are facilitated by a cooperation program called connectr which connect two important campussen Arnhems Buiten and IPKW. Strong focus is also on the Start up community. These facilities are present and housed in the prominent heart of the businesspark where international recruitment is a hot topic.
“The park will be made more sustainable in the coming years with its own energy generation, sustainable installations, and intelligent exchange and balancing systems.”

The public-private partnership between Oost NL and City Developer-S owns Arnhems Buiten. The joint focus is to further strengthen a high-quality and knowledge-intensive environment with a key position in the current energy transition. Stimulating and driving the regional sustainable economy is central to this, which is done by strengthening cooperation in a high-quality, unique, green environment.
Various companies, international headquarters, and institutions have relocated to Arnhems Buiten in recent years or have always been located here. This community is constantly changing and rapidly growing. Redeveloping 50 to 100-year-old energy labs leads to constantly emerging new inspiring environments to work, discover and innovate in.
