Indispensable tool for filling in fuel and cleaning certificates.
After Flanders and Wallonia, also the Brussels Capital Region published its maintenance decree (Moniteur Belge, 9 July 2010). This means that from now on in Belgium for any maintenance on a gas or oil boiler a certificate should be completed by the maintenance technician. Therefore, ICS will suggest on HVAC 2010 a handy electronic device that saves valuable time and reduces potential mistakes to a minimum.

ASHRAE (American Society of Heating, Refrigeration and Air Conditioning Engineers) has recommended in 2008 new temperatures and hygrometric guidelines for data centers, IT rooms, server rooms and so on. The new values found in the latest publication of ASHRAE are much wider and lower than in the past. These values also allow the use of direct free cooling to about 19° C outdoor temperature. The use of direct free cooling can be used for both small and large installations. This also means a huge saving of consumption for the owner. Concrete values will be shown during the presentation through examples.

Several players in the sector, both companies as knowledge centres and other involved parties have been grouped in the Heat Platform (WPP) to stimulate the market for heat pumps. The Heat Platform (WPP) is part of ODE-Vlaanderen, the umbrella organization for the sustainable energy sector, recognized and supported by the Flemish government.

As an independent and customer-oriented research organisation, VITO provides innovative technological solutions and scientifically based advice and support to stimulate sustainable development and to strengthen the economic and social fabric of Flanders.

BOUWUNIE, the Flemish federation of the SMEs of the construction, defends the interests of its members (the employers and the independent workers in the field of construction). They provide specialist advice, lobbies, imposes its own accents, proclaims its own views and offers a platform where colleagues can meet.

Heat pumps have a great potential of renewable energy for heating buildings in both residential and commercial buildings. They are an important alternative to fossil energy sources. A proper heat pump system design, aligned to the actual requirements of the building is important where the arrangement is to be executed as simple as possible.
