Impacts of size and history length on energetic community load forecasting: a Belgian case study

Bilingual conference/webinars : French and English

Renewable and recovered energies are increasingly mobilized at the building, village or city level. At the same time, "energy communities" are emerging at the initiative of citizens with the support of local authorities, associations or companies. These transformations are reshaping spaces, institutions and norms governing energy networks, housing or cities and are pushing stakeholders to act. The aim of this multidisciplinary conference is to update and compare the framework, practices and tools of energy communities, which are considered here as local mediation between production and consumption. Expected communications could concern : actors coordination, energy systems regulation, effects of and on inhabited or transformed spaces, and multi-actor methods and tools. In addition to human and social sciences analyses (economics, sociology, urban planning, political science, etc.), we also expect proposals from design sciences.
