3 district heating days in Antwerp and Brussels

9. December 2019 - 12. December 2019

3 district heating days in Antwerp and Brussels

Learn more about the district heating development in Belgium and meet the entire sector during our 3-day visit!

Recent European studies have shown that Belgium could cover about 40% of its heat demand with sustainable district heating networks. In the centre of cities and municipalities, district heating seems to be the preferred path for greening the heating sector, and presents obvious untapped potential. Promoting district heating as a technological solution requires ambitious, long-term policies and financing mechanisms at all levels: local, regional and national.  Things are happening in Belgium for sure! So, join us for an exciting 3-day event to exchange on the great potential for district heating in Belgium, from the regions’ development plans, the latest innovation developments, to financing possibilities and local public support.

We are inviting for what is actually 2 events in Belgium – one day in Brussels and two days in Antwerp. The overall program will be:

  • Tuesday December 10th: Seminar in Brussels, travel to Antwerp and dinner
  • Wednesday December 11th: Seminar in Antwerp
  • Thursday December 12th: Site visits in Antwerp

The events are co-organised between a large group of organisations: The Danish Embassy in Belgium, two Belgian sustainable energy federations ODE (Warmtenetwerk Vlaanderen) and EDORA plus ISVAG, the City of Antwerp and DBDH. We expect 150+ participants at each seminar!

For both seminars we have a great range of speakers, networking opportunities and possibilities to present your company. Jan Strømvig from Fjernvarme Fyn will be our super-expert 😊 travelling with us all the way.

  • In Brussel we will have a full-day seminar with focus on the whole of Belgium and will provide a comprehensive overview and an opportunity to debate on the state-of-play of district heating in Belgium, with the unique participation of all Belgian regions and relevant stakeholders. Day 1 will allow to address the potential and vision for district heating drawn from the EU and Denmark, the current strategies and vision from Belgian regions to develop district heating and the related export opportunities for Danish companies, the latest local innovation developments, and how to approach the question of financing and public support for district heating in Belgium. Capital Region, Walloon Region and Flemish Region. After the seminar we go to Antwerp for a dinner hosted by the City of Antwerp for the Danish delegation.
  • The City of Antwerp will host the second seminar-day – this time we will focus on Antwerp and Flanders and the advanced state-of-play and latest developments in district heating in the Flemish region, focusing on technical challenges and B2B discussions. The seminar has invited speakers from Denmark, Germany, Ireland and the Netherlands to get input from a wide group of countries. Here we also have a strong focus on the participating companies, who are all invited to present their latest innovation and/or best value-added arguments.
  • Day will consist off 3 Site-visits to a few new projects  – offered to the Danish delegation and other participants from the day 2 – seminar.

Both seminar-days will include both Belgium and Danish speakers.
