Sustainable heating with the heating network in Roeselare

Roeselare, a city in Flanders, is the trendsetter when it comes to sustainable heating systems. By utilizing the heat released from the incineration of non-recyclable waste, Roeselare has created a 9-kilometer-long underground heat network. This innovative technology provides environmentally friendly heat to various buildings in the city. In this article, we will discuss how Roeselare plans to drastically reduce its CO2 emissions and expand the heat network. In addition, we will discover how Goddeeris, a leading company, is contributing to a sustainable Roeselare by connecting several important organizations to the heat network.

The heat grid in Roeselare: A sustainable solution

The heat network in Roeselare uses the heat released from the incineration of non-recyclable waste. This heat is transported to buildings in the city via a 9-kilometer-long underground pipe network. The system provides efficient and environmentally friendly heating to the connected buildings, resulting in reduced CO2 emissions. Roeselare has positioned itself as a forerunner in the field of renewable energy in Flanders.

Expanding the heat grid for a greener future

With the goal of significantly reducing CO2 emissions by 2020, Roeselare has ambitious plans to expand its heat network. In 2017, about 20 additional organizations will be heating via the heat network, including AZ Delta (Brugsesteenweg), the CVO, the Burgerschool, residential project Het Laere-Matexi (Noordstraat), allotment Licht & Ruimte (Oostnieuwkerksesteenweg), MSKA (Tant campus) and the future swimming pool at Schiervelde. As a result, the heat network will more than double in length, to as much as 19 kilometers.

Goddeeris: A pioneer in sustainability

Goddeeris is playing an essential role in the success of the heat network in Roeselare. Through Goddeeris’ expertise, important buildings and organizations are connected to the heat network, allowing them to enjoy the benefits of sustainable heating. With their involvement in connecting AZ Delta, the CVO, the Burgerschool, Het Laere-Matexi, Licht & Ruimte, MSKA and the future swimming pool at Schiervelde, they are contributing to the realization of a sustainable Roeselare.

Towards a sustainable future

The heat grid in Roeselare and the expansion plans represent an important step toward a sustainable future for the city. By reducing CO2 emissions and utilizing non-recyclable waste heat, Roeselare is putting itself on the map as an example of environmental awareness and innovation. With the support and involvement of companies like Goddeeris, the pursuit of a sustainable Roeselare is becoming a reality.

In short, Roeselare is a trendsetter in Flanders when it comes to sustainable heating systems. The heat grid, which uses the heat from non-recyclable waste, provides buildings in the city with environmentally friendly heat, thereby reducing CO2 emissions. With ambitious plans for expansion and the involvement of Goddeeris, Roeselare is contributing to a sustainable future. The pursuit of a greener city is becoming a reality, and Roeselare is taking a pioneering role in it.
