Departement Omgeving

Electromobility – policy support
Departement Omgeving – 3E (main contractor)- SuReal – Stroohm – Volta

Last year the EC published the amended Directive on the energy performance of buildings and energy efficiency in which article 8 deals with electromobility. Departement Omgeving – the Flemish Department of Environment and Spatial Development – aims to gather the necessary insights and technical specifications to fully transpose the obligations of the Directive to a revised decree. Combining expertise, analysis and stakeholder input, SuReal defines a technical proposition for the charging infrastructure for EVs in and around buildings in that regard.

Indoor air quality
Group Van Vooren (soil pollution & air quality measurement) – SuReal

In the South of Antwerp, critical levels of VOC are reached in certain dwellings due to soil pollution. As a result, the indoor air quality in the concerned buildings is severely reduced and there’s an increased risk of health issues. SuReal investigates and proposes a set of technical measures to improve indoor air quality.
