ORES Chair

In January 2012, ORES (the company in charge of electricity and natural gas distribution grids in Wallonia, Belgium) and UMONS officially launched an academic chair which now links the two partners. The ORES Chair is working towards introducing smart grids into the electricty sector, a real technological revolution. It also anticipates developing knowledge in this field and in smart meters.

The ORES Chair focuses particularly on:

  • studying the impact of decentralised electricity production on distribution grids,
  • managing electricity demand and its relevance to production,
  • solving computer security problems regarding the transfer of data on power distribution networks,
  • examining the impact of developing the use of electric vehicles on these same networks..
