Borehole Thermal Energy Storage at Campus Wevelgem - Intercommunale Leiedal (BE)

Energy concept: The project site Campus Wevelgem is located in the center of the municipality of Wevelgem and contains several public services such as an elementary school, a kindergarten and a residential care house. Leiedal aims at realizing one central Borehole Thermal Energy Storage (BTES) system for a Renewable Energy Community. The geothermal energy will be used to provide heat and cooling for the existing and planned new buildings.

Stakeholders involved:

  • Local municipality of Wevelgem
  • Elementary School and kindergarten
  • Residential care house
