SCCALE 20 30 50 Study tour in Culemborg

Join us in Culemborg (NL) on 21th April 2023 and discover the local energy community utility company Thermo Bello and energy community Vrijstad Energie. 


SCCALE 20 30 50 is inviting local governments’ employees and replication sites to a study tour in Culemborg on April 21st. Participants will be able to choose between 2 projects:

Thermo Bello is the first Dutch energy community having developed their own district heating system. Taking a role as heat producer, heat supplier and distribution system operator they own their own heating system in the neighbourhood of EVA-Lanxmeer. We will take a look at the heat production system while learning about the history and organization of this citizen company.

Energy community Vrijstad Energie has developed a public solar carport parking lot with charging station. The system incorporates innovations such as smart charging in solar hours, vehicle-to-grid, and preventing cars from unnecessarily occupying parking spots while being fully charged. We will take a look at the charging station while learning the details from the energy community.
