23/04/2018 REHVA Conference: Low carbon technologies in HVAC

On Monday April 23rd,  Prof. Depaepe (UGent) and Prof. Verhaert (UAntwerp) chaired the annual REHVA conference, which hosted 150 attendees from both the research and professional world.

Present with 10 staff members, boydens engineering not only supported the initiative to exchange knowledge in HVAC innovations, but as active members of the hybridGEOTABS consortium, we were also instrumental for two of the nine conference sessions presented by hybridGEOTABS,(whereby intermediate findings and progress was presented).

Prof. Emeritus Jean Lebrun (ULg) considered the 'Godfather' of building simulation in Belgium expressed how impressed he was with the insights on the Herman Teirlinck building  and other boydens hybridGEOTABS demonstration buildings, (such as ter Potterie, Dilbeek office, and Solarwind) presented by Prof. Wim Boydens.

Damien Picard presented his KULeuven work on predesign optimalization of hybrid supply systems, whereby future developements shall be further elaborated. 
We hope this day offered all the opportunity of learning and knowledge sharing.
