|| energy efficiency measures|
|Audit, relighting, smart metering|
Courant d'Air owns 2 out of 5 turbines in a wind farm in Waimes (Belgium). When the Minister for Energy recommended the municipalities to raise a tax on these installations, the cooperative suggested to support the municipalities in taking energy efficiency measures in their public buildings. The municipalities finally agreed. Courant d'Air developed a local and sustainable energy action plan which started with an extended energy audit on 15 public buildings (local schools). This analysis resulted in the installation of smart meters (electricity & heat), an optimization of the current installations and the replacement of old light bulbs by LED. Courant d'Air started with the first investement in June 2016.
