Leen Peeters from Th!nk-E provides updated on the progress in the demosite of Oud-Heverlee in the last months.
How did the recent Covid-19 crisis impact your work in MUSE GRIDS?
The engagement with the end consumers was substantially impacted by the lock down. Since mid-June, installation of devices is possible again and hence we are about to install the second hybrid heat pump in the coming days.
What are the latest updates in the Oud-Heverlee demosite?
The installation of the first hybrid heat pump took place in the first half of June. The end-consumers changed their heating system in order to be able to maximise the use of the heat pump and avoid the boiler as much as possible.
What to expect over the summer?
In the next few months we will continue the installations and prepare a new event replacing the cancelled one of end of March. This event will engage the end-consumer in a P2P market.
