About EnergyVille®

The brand new research institute EnergyVille is a pioneer in sustainable energy consumption and smart energy systems. This unique research institute was created through an initiative of KU Leuven, VITO and imec and found its home in the Thor Wetenschapspark [Science Park], one of the old mining sites surrounding Genk. In April 2016, approximately 200 researchers will move into this high-tech, low-energy project, which endeavours to become a “Living Lab”. Even after completion, thanks to fifthplay, it will be possible to continuously evaluate and optimize Campus EnergyVille, based on measurements carried out regarding the use and production of energy

The Challenge

  • To obtain an “excellent” BREEAM certificate
  • Continuously measure and optimize energy use in and around the building
  • A building process in which technology is part of the design from the outset
