Main project: Definition of Belgian energy system's boundary conditions based on multi-region energy modelling
Funding: BEST Project
Supervisor(s): Hervé Jeanmart

In the context of the energy transition, strategic planning is necessary to ensure security of supply. In Belgium, this planning should consider the influence of neighbouring countries. In particular, exchanges of electricity and other energy carriers may have a major role in Belgium’s energy system transition. The goal of this thesis is to assess such a problem and define proper boundary conditions for the study of Belgian energy system transition.
