Contrat de performance énergétique Ville de Charleroi
6000 Charleroi
Belgium

In September 2022, Luminus Solutions signed an ambitious energy performance contract with the city of Charleroi. Thanks to this RenoWatt project, Charleroi will be able to save just over 50% on its energy expenditure and drastically reduce CO2 emissions from 16 buildings.

Luminus Solutions will implement energy-saving measures totalling more than 50 million euros in various municipal buildings. More specifically, in eight large schools, six sports complexes, a crèche and a multi-purpose hall.

The works include:

  • Insulation of facades and building envelope
  • Replacement of windows
  • Installation of 1.4 MWp of solar panels
  • Renovation of the boiler rooms -Installation of a biomass boiler
  • Relighting at several sites
  • Installation of ventilation systems on almost all sites or adaptation of existing systems to current standards

By signing the energy performance contract (EPC) with Charleroi, Luminus Solutions commits to reducing energy consumption by investing in high-performance equipment and guaranteeing the optimal maintenance of that equipment for 15 years. This will allow the city to reduce the energy consumption of these buildings by more than 50%, while reducing greenhouse gas emissions and increasing comfort for users.

And an important ecological plus: Luminus Solutions undertakes to offset the remaining CO2 emissions after the works and during the maintenance period by planting more than 7,000 trees in the region. Thus, the project will eventually become CO2 neutral.
