Solar innovation seminars - Using solar to tackle the current energy price challenges

Rising energy prices have ensured that renewable energy sources such as solar panels have never been as interesting. However, to get the most out of your investment, it is necessary to optimise your self-consumption.

Saturday September 17th we have the pleasure of welcoming Peter Van Strydonck (representative for partnerships at Fluvius) and Dirk Van Evercooren (General Director ODE) as guest speakers.
