THE FUTURE OF COGENERATION IN BELGIUM, THE ENERGY EFFICIENCY CHOICE IN THE ENERGY TRANSITION
Combined heat and power serves as a backbone to the modern Belgian energy mix, servicing the electricity and heating needs for hundreds of industrial manufacturers, public sector organisations and commercial businesses. Simultaneously contributing to the security of supply and to the EU-targets.
"THE FUTURE OF COGENERATION IN BELGIUM" will focus on some of the key opportunities and challenges for CHP in a fast-moving energy system in transition and in need of reliability and flexibility.
The Conference will consider how changes to electricity network and gas networks will affect CHP, as well as the technological, operational and market innovations which are taking place across the sector.
The event is aimed at key stakeholders from industry, consultants, local authorities, government and academics.
Conference moderated by Jacob Klimstra, Senior Energy and CHP Applications Specialist.
