  1. Research report 'Five years of the Vlerick Energy Centre'

    The future of energy

    Energy concerns all of us. Being intertwined with the debate on decarbonisation and climate change, energy is a potentially hot topic. This report marks the fifth anniversary of the Vlerick Energy Centre – a good opportunity to look back at some of our achievements and lessons learned, and to look ahead.

  2. Power-to-Gas (P2G)

    Power-to-gas is the future. What should regulators bear in mind?

    Doctoral researcher Martin Roach developed an economic model for power-to-gas (PTG) that anticipates the EU and Belgian regulation of sector coupling. “Being one of the first to take into account market dynamics, it provides timely and valuable input to the debate”, says a proud professor Leonardo Meeus.

  3. White paper - energy storage

    Energy storage

    The electricity landscape is in a state of flux, not least due to the increasing integration of renewable energy sources and distributed generation. This has sparked growing interest in energy storage, arguably an important part of the renewable energy mix. How can energy storage be used and integrated into existing power systems, in both residential and industrial environments? This is the key question the STORY project aims to address. This white paper presents the findings and insights from studies conducted under the umbrella of the STORY project, as well as from various experts.

  4. The future of DSOs

    The energy transition is changing the energy ecosystem. In recent years, power generation and distribution have become more decentralised. DSOs now find themselves at the centre of change, operating the grid which all these new players – producers and prosumers – want to connect to and use. In 2018 the DSO Chair organised two workshops to discuss topical issues facing the future of DSOs: (1) energy communities and (2) regulatory sandboxes. This white paper provides a round-up of the findings and insights from each workshop as well as suggesting areas for further exploration.

    Regulation of electricity networks: what you need to know

    Since the start of deregulation at the end of the nineties, the electricity market has undergone dramatic changes. It is often tricky for newcomers to understand why things are the way they are or to appreciate the route that led here. To get a historical perspective and tips for the future, read Electricity Network Regulation in the EU – The Challenges Ahead for Transmission and Distribution by Professor Leonardo Meeus, director of the Vlerick Energy Centre, and Jean-Michel Glachant, director of the Florence School of Regulation and holder of the Loyola de Palacio Chair on energy policy in the EU.

  6. Eandis Chair team

    “Smart meters accelerating change”

    With the smart metering proof of concept and pilot phases completed, Eandis can take pride in the upcoming roll-out of an ambitious project that started way back in 2007. Heads-up with Jean-Pierre Hollevoet from Eandis, Professor Behzad Samii and researcher Olga Varganova.

  7. Renewable energy generation

    Unlocking the potential of renewable energy

    Policy changes and technological developments have caused a significant increase in the installed capacity of renewable energy generation sources, such as wind and solar power. As a result, there has been a steep growth in renewable electricity generation, which is variable and decentralised. Electricity consumers increasingly become prosumers. However, the electricity market structures were not designed to deal with the consequences. What can we do to take advantage of renewable energy? Ariana Ramos’ doctoral thesis provides a qualitative and, most importantly, quantitative analysis of the challenges and possible solutions.

    Enedis – market maker, not market taker

    Enedis, a subsidiary of EDF, is in charge of the last mile in the delivery of electricity to most of France. This case study follows the start and development of Enedis' digital transformation, with the ambition to be at the forefront of the energy sector in the digital age.

  9. What every DSO should know about digital

    Energy sector gearing up for digital transformation

    Distribution system operators are facing a radical digital transformation of their business model. They could go from purely managing the physical infrastructure to acting as data hubs or neutral distributors of energy data as well. Are we on the verge of an ‘Uberisation’ of the energy sector? Stijn Viaene, Professor at Vlerick Business School, believes we are.
