The LATENT project investigates the operational and legal preconditions to realise a very low temperature collective energy network. The project is part of the Environmental and Energy Technology Innovation Platform of i-Cleantech Flanders and is elaborated by Ingenium together with project partners Markey, Hydroscan and Iftech.

The acronym LATENT stands for Low Temperature Energy Net Assessment Tool.
Energy supplies for companies and buildings are today mostly considered on an individual basis. Collective heat networks are an interesting solution. However, today's generation of highly insulated buildings have low heat consumption and consequently a relatively higher proportion of cooling load. Heat networks must be adapted to this and must therefore make it possible to exchange energy at very low temperatures (5-30°C) so that both cooling and heating can be provided. The ZLT network makes use of natural energy sources (surface and groundwater) or energy exchange between users.
