    “Flexibility” and “The role of hydrogen, green gas and other molecules in Belgium”: these were the topics of the two round tables organised this year as part of the Prime Foundation Partnership with KPMG. To conclude the three-year partnership, and in anticipation of a further collaboration, Professor Leonardo Meeus and Jorn De Neve, Partner, Head of Advisory and Head of the Energy Sector at KPMG, look back on their work.

    Distribution system operator Fluvius will be continuing the DSO Chair at the Energy Centre with Vlerick for another five years. “Vlerick makes us take a critical look at ourselves, and that makes sense. After all, no single energy player has all the answers to the question of how we can keep energy distribution manageable for consumers and the environment.” Professor Leonardo Meeus and Donald Vanbeveren (Corporate Affairs Director at Fluvius) talk about this renewed commitment.

    Places for the first edition were snapped up in a flash, and the second edition promises to fill up fast too. The Belgian Energy Crash Course not only meets the needs for solid knowledge of the new employees at the traditional market players who do not have a background in the sector. The programme also literally energises a community that will continue to exist after its completion.

    On 7 February, the names Eandis and Infrax will disappear to make way for the new company Fluvius. “Although the merger is in line with the economic logic and political momentum, that doesn’t make the challenges any smaller.” That is why the Director of Regulation & Strategy Donald Vanbeveren and our energy professor Leonardo Meeus have decided to supplement the chair's traditional one-on-one research with interactive workshops. The first workshop was about regulatory sandboxes – and Donald pronounced it “super!”

  5. “In energy, all European countries are allies”

    The coming two years, the Austrian DSO, Netz Niederösterreich, takes part in the DSO Chair of the Vlerick Energy Centre. For Werner Hengst, Managing Director of Netz NÖ, the open dialogue he has experienced with European colleagues is both refreshing and necessary, because “in energy, all European countries are allies”.

  6. Did you say renewable gas?

    Category: Partner News

    By 2050, we need to keep the increase in the global average temperature below 2°C – and ideally below 1.5°C. In order to achieve this goal, the Holy Grail is to switch to electricity en masse. ‘And what about natural gas?’ asked the natural gas transporter Fluxys. “Gas is also renewable. Over the next five years, we want to explore how we can link the – underexplored – possibilities of gas to those of electricity.” And rightly so, because hardly anyone still believes that the future will be entirely electric in 2050.

  7. A Belgian Interfederal Energy Pact? Fortunately, there is Europe.

    Category: Partner News

    Within Vlerick's Prime Foundation Partnership with KPMG round-table meetings are being organised, discussing the Belgian energy policy. “We want to act as a sounding board for ideas to achieve the transition to a low-carbon energy system,” says Professor Leonardo Meeus. What started out as a discussion on the Belgian Interfederal Energy Pact evolved towards a broader European focus within the framework of the Energy Union Governance Regulation, stipulating that all member states must prepare a detailed national plan for 2021-2030 describing their ambitions and measures with regard to their energy and climate strategy. Professor Leonardo Meeus and Jorn De Neve (KPMG) share their thoughts.

  8. New programmes help energy companies to apply the EU Clean Energy Package

    Date:
    Category: Programme news

    The European energy sector is undergoing a huge transition. The measures in the EU Clean Energy Package are also forcing the established electricity companies to reassess their position in the market. With the support of InnoEnergy and in collaboration with Florence School of Regulation, Vlerick Business School is therefore launching several new programmes which aim to provide these companies with insights into the new business opportunities offered by the rapidly changing European energy landscape, and into how they can help to shape the transition in this way.

  9. “With all energy players around the table”

    Date:
    Category: Partner News

    The energy pact that all governments signed at the end of March finally creates a framework for the energy transition in our country. It also immediately increases the pressure on all energy players to enter into the debate. “In the new Prime Foundation Partnership, Vlerick and KPMG aim to act as the sounding board for the entire energy ecosystem, through workshops.” Jorn De Neve of KPMG and Professor Leonardo Meeus reflect on this pivotal moment.
