Flanders ups its game in renewable energy research

The EnergyVille campus in Genk, Flanders expands. In 2018, this world-renowned knowledge center for green energy will open a second facility. Some 100 researchers, mainly from imec and the University of Hasselt, will be dedicated to developing new energy-generating and storing technologies. 

A new center with all the trimmings

EnergyVille II, as the building will be called, will house 5000 m² of cutting-edge labs, assembly units and offices. “This second facility is a nice addition to the labs we already have,” comments Ronnie Belmans, CEO at EnergyVille. “Once the infrastructure is ready, we’ll be able to perform even more top-notch research and provide knowledge to companies both at home and abroad.” 

Working together for even bigger achievements

“By combining imec’s expertise with the know how concerning renewable energy at VITO, KU Leuven and UHasselt, we can augment the number of innovative breakthroughs,” explains Ludo Deferm, executive vice president at imec. By working together with several partners, such as manufacturing companies, energy and service providers, EnergyVille can strengthen Flanders’ top reputation in terms of renewable energy technologies even further.
