The Smart Belgium Event is an initiative set up by Belfius to contribute towards creating a sustainable and smart community together. More than 150 companies have submitted a ‘smart’ project over the last few months. A panel of experts has then selected 50 nominees divided into 5 categories. Hysopt is one of the 10 nominees in the category: Smart Company Award < 10 million EUR turnover.
Hydraulic Optimisation at Vrije Universiteit Brussel
Hysopt received its nomination thanks to the project at the Vrije Universiteit Brussel (VUB) where we fully optimised the heating network. This was no easy job – the VUB is spread across three campuses and various other outbuildings. The VUB is now ultimately saving €300,000 per year thanks to the hydraulic optimisation of its heating network. You can learn all about the project here.
A panel of experts will be presenting the Smart Belgium Awards on 24 April. In order to get the general public more excited about sustainable and smart projects, there’s also a Public Award. You can still vote until 17 April. We’re counting on your support.
