  • Citizen engagement and the City-Zen project 20.10.2017

    On Thursday 5 October our colleague Sarah Bogaert gave a presentation on the City-zen project during European Utility Week. The City-zen presentation was part of the “citizen engagement” session. The key-takeaways of the presentation can be found below.

    The objective of the City-zen project is to develop and demonstrate energy efficient cities and to build a methodology and tools for cities, industries and citizens to reach the 20-20-20 targets. In order to make this possible 20 projects were set up in Grenoble and Amsterdam.

  • EnergyVille @ European Utility Week 12.10.2017

    Last week EnergyVille was present at the European Utility Week in Amsterdam. The event serves as an annual meeting point for the smart utility community, ranging from utilities, network operators, vendors, consultants, startups and system integrators covering the entire smart energy value chain. It was attended by over 12.000 international visitors, 550 speakers (including 4 from EnergyVille) and almost 600 exhibitors.

  • Mian Wang and her co-authors from KU Leuven/EnergyVille and Mitsubishi Electric Europe win the Cigré SC B4 Best Student Paper Award at key conference worldwide on HVDC! 06.10.2017

  • EnergyVille introduces technical solution for better energy utilization of a low-temperature thermal source 13.09.2017

    Milano, Italy – 13 September 2017 – During the 4th edition of the International Seminar on Organic Rankine Cycle Power Systems, EnergyVille, a research institute which focuses on sustainable energy and intelligent energy systems, has introduced a new study which investigates the performance of a novel combined heat-and-power (CHP) configuration: the Preheat-parallel configuration. This Preheat-parallel configuration combines the benefits of the conventional series and parallel CHP plants. It uses the remaining heat of the energy source in the series branch to preheat the district heating water, which is subsequently heated to the required supply temperature in the parallel branch. According to the study, the preheat-parallel configuration shows a significantly higher efficiency than the series and parallel configurations and therefore opens new opportunities for low-temperature fueled (e.g. geothermal) CHP plants.

  • Number of heat pumps in Flanders doubles in 4 years time 08.09.2017

    Today 22,000 heat pumps provide heating in houses and buildings all over Flanders. This is the double of what was taken record of in 2013. However, to fulfill the renewable energy targets of 2020, the annual installation tempo should double once more. This can only be accomplished by means of an ambitious policy. 

  • Opiniestuk - Betaalbaarheid, betrouwbaarheid en duurzaamheid: een haalbare combinatie 30.08.2017

    De transitie naar een duurzaam, betaalbaar en betrouwbaar energiesysteem heeft een belangrijke maatschappelijke impact. Er is nood aan substantiële investeringen en daarom dienen de keuzes die gemaakt worden feitelijk en cijfermatig onderbouwd te worden. Enkel zo is een lange termijn energiepolitiek haalbaar en wordt er afgestapt van de huidige stop-and-go aanpak die de laatste 15 jaar op federaal vlak gekenmerkt heeft

  • Eandis, Infrax en EnergyVille zetten je woning op de kaart 12.06.2017

  • Researcher Jef Beerten nominated for the New Scientist Science Talent award 24.05.2017

    The science magazine New Scientist will for the third time award a prize this year for the largest scientific talent of the Netherlands and Flanders: the New Scientist Science Talent 2017. This award was launched last year to bring groundbreaking research by young scientists from Belgium and the Netherlands to the attention of a wide audience.

  • Business Day 23.05.2017

    On the 23rd of May 2017 the third annual Business Day was held at EnergyVille. It turned out to be a very successful edition with more than 140 participants following the sessions of GeoWatt, SolSThore, Smart Cities and SmarThor.

    The purpose of the Business Day was to open up our research for the industry and exchange valuable insights into our current and future developments. 

    For the first time the possibility was also given to schedule a private meeting with one of our experts and discuss opportunities which will help our industry to develop and produce the most advanced technology at all times.

    In case you haven’t been able to join us on the Business Day, don't worry. The full programme and the  presentations of all the individual sessions can be found below.
