On 26th of April, the kick-off meeting of the new interactive business nework on Energy Management in Transition took place in Ghent. The meeting was co-organised by Energik, the city of Ghent and Ghent University.
More than 20 businesses concerned about their energy consumption were present to discuss their experience in energy management and to find opportunities to collaborate with others in this transition. The meeting was a starting point of a learning network wherein businesses in Flanders will exchange information, knowledge and experience on their energy management.
During the panel discussion one message stood out: energy synergies among businesses can be an important step stone in the energy transition of businesses. However, current legislation is designed for the former energy system.
The feedback of the present businesses was very positive and the need for a learning network to exchange energy experience was fully confirmed.
