Assessing Community Boundaries – Graaf Karel De Goedelaan, Kortrijk, Flanders – January 2019 – September 2021

The site is one of the most important sites in West-Flanders when it comes to education of new technical engineers and is in full expansion. The existing technical schools are connected and can exchange energy.

 

In addition, a low temperature district heating network between the new swimming pool and the public building is being established. Furthermore, a district heating network is installed to connect the southern and northern part of the district. With other more buildings that will be built, the district will become a dense group of connected buildings in the medium term.

 

Primary objectives of this site

 

Assess different LEC boundaries and corresponding system design alternatives, for the following activities:

  • Increased local electricity production (CHP, solar PV), self-consumption and sharing of energy (potentially beyond LEC boundaries)

  • EV car charging, battery storage and smart system control (to participate in energy markets)

  • Value chain (roles and local agreements)

  • Tariffing structures

  • Triggers for participation

 

 

The project will benefit from the addition of several technologies on site such as the district heating grid, solar PV, smart meters, smart EV chargers, electrical storage.
