Context

In the current context of energy transition, district heating systems are considered as a convenient and efficient solution to reduce global energy consumption and specifically greenhouse gases emissions. The use of local alternative heat sources, like heat from waste incinerators, could be an opportunity to valorize low-grade heat reducing the energy dependence. Thus, areas with high excess heat activities are interesting sectors to investigate in order to develop district networks. In Belgium, the heating and cooling demand includes around half of the final energy consumption of the country (around 165 TWh). Excess heat sources, which are estimated around 68 MWh, could therefore cover more than 40% of the total heating demand.

 

Objectives

The main goal of this project is the development of a decision support computer tool dedicated to the simulation and multi-scale energy optimization of urban agriculture sites as a first step and, secondly, to extend it to urban sites. The different scales that can be studied are the following three: a greenhouse dedicated to the production of molecules with high added value ("greenhouse scale"); an urban agriculture site including the greenhouse, other cultivation methods, possible buildings and their thermal energy supply systems (co-generation units, district heating network, etc.) ("scale of the agricultural urban site"); and a city comprising one or more urban agriculture sites and a park of buildings (residential and tertiary), all connected by a district heating network ("city scale"). As a first step, the connection of a greenhouse to an existing waste heat incinerator (Liège) using a district heating network is studied. The main objectives of the project are the followings:
Dynamic modeling of a greenhouse and of the district heating network
• Study of non-conventional heat sources (heat pump, co-generation plants, ORC, cycles absorption, etc.), heat recovery systems and storage systems
• Development of optimization tools for control strategies of the network
• Development of a simulation platform at the greenhouse and urban scale
Model calibration and performance analyses of the network
• Analysis of the improvement opportunities

BRICKER aims to develop a retrofitting solution package for existing public-owned non-residential buildings in order to achieve a drastic reduction of the energy consumption (beyond 50%) and GHG emissions in this sector. 

This retrofitting package is based on:

  • Envelope retrofitting solutions for demand reduction through made-to-measure façades, innovative insulation materials and high performance windows.
  • Zero emissions energy production technologies based on a cogeneration system fed with locally available and clean renewable sources.
  • Integration and operation strategies´ development for the BRICKER Technologies and guidance for design, commissioning and maintenance.

The retrofitting solution package will be implemented in three real demonstration multi-buildings complexes, located in different climate conditions in three different European Countries and with different end-uses: Sanitary, Educational and Administrative.

To maximize impact and replicability of the project, technologies´ integration, guidance for implementation and technological transfer to Social Housing will be developed. These should help public bodies on implementation of optimal building retrofitting strategies, taking into account economic and financial aspects in the framework of limited access to funding, breakthroughs and innovative business models and continuous operation strategies during renovation.
