A great success for the University of Liège, the CHU of Liège and the GRE-Liège during the 13th edition of the Belgian Energy and Environment Prize award ceremony held at the BEL on the Tour & Taxis site in Brussels on 7 June!
he EEEF plan for the energy renovation of the buildings of ULiège and the CHU of Liège in Sart Tilman, supported by the GRE-Liège, was indeed nominated in the "Sustainable Building Award" category and then received the special "Luminus Premium Partner Award".
This is a fine award that highlights one of the axes of the environmental policy of the University of Liège.
Green campuses, a sustainable university
ULiège and the CHU de Liège are investing, with the support of the GRE-Liège, 32.5 million euros in the energy renovation of 11 buildings (200,000 m²) on the Sart Tilman campus.
These buildings of modernist architecture have a significant heritage value requiring special treatment. The energy savings are significant. They amount to 19,277 MWh of primary energy and 2,717 tonnes of CO2 equivalent per year, i.e. a 35% reduction in heat consumption and a 13% reduction in electricity consumption.
The impacts of this ambitious project concern all aspects of sustainable development, be they environmental, economic, social or cultural.
