Visit to the Pilot Site in Belgium

Sustainable Innovation did a Pilot Site Visit in June 2022 to conduct interviews with researchers and developers who are involved. The video interviews will be published on the BD4OPEM website and in social media channels for you to meet some of the key people within the BD4OPEM project. The pilot site in Belgium is a microgrid within a hospital, which needs to be able to function at all times even during a power outage. This is crucial in order to save lives during an on-going operation or just the day-to-day operations of medical staff. Data from the pilot site is used to test the following services developed by VUB within BD4OPEM: (1) grid congestion prediction, (2) predictive maintenance within power grids and (3) asset optimisation of microgrids.
