Hélie Moreau awarded prize for best thesis in circular economy

During the Be Circular event, held on 24 October 2018 at Tour & Taxis, Hélie Moreau won the prize for best thesis in circular economy.

Hélie is 26 years old and holds a Masters Degree in Environmental Sciences and Management from the ULB. His dissertation talks about the collective self-consumption of photovoltaic electricity in the Brussels-Capital Region.

In his dissertation, Hélie Moreau examines the optimum conditions for implementing the collective consumption of self-produced photovoltaic electricity in the Brussels-Capital Region, in such a way that its development is positive for all parties: the producer, the consumer, society, and the environment. To that end, he started by analysing collective self-production in Germany and France. He then interviewed stakeholders of the Brussels electricity network and the photovoltaic sector.

The student's pragmatic approach in particular pleased the jury. Starting with practices implemented overseas and comparing them with the region's regulatory framework, the project proposes operational solutions that can be tested via pilot projects. The transformation potential for the region was also much appreciated.
