This roadmap is a strategic plan that describes the necessary steps to roll-out 4th generation district heating systems (4DHC) in South-West-Flanders. It clearly outlines priorities for action in the near, medium and long term.
In order to make this roadmap, an analysis was performed on CO2 emissions in South-West-Flanders, the existing district heating networks, and the current state of heat demand and heat sources. In addition, through a series of capacity building workshops with the municipalities of South-West-Flanders, it was possible to further detail district heating opportunities in Kortrijk, Harelbeke and Kuurne. Each of these opportunities has been checked with a feasibility study. The ‘heat zoning’ map of South-West-Flanders demonstrates which district heating systems can be established in a short, medium and long term.
