Technical feasibility study

During a building renovation or design project, the ICEDD, through its expertise, provides integrated support, capable of fitting into all levels and stages of project design and execution.

The pre-feasibility study, also known as the a suitability study, helps to determine the potential for the implementation of a technical solution in order to enable the project owner to choose a direction based on the costs and the energy savings generated.

The purpose of the technical feasibility study, depending on the characteristics of a building or process, is to identify technical or technological solutions capable of meeting both the energy needs and the environmental and economic needs of the project.

The ICEDD supports project owners to determine the possibility of using:

  • The implementation of an alternative energy production technology (heat pumps, cogeneration, heat network, photovoltaic panels, etc.);
  • The improvement of the energy performance of a building (study of thermal bridges, etc.);
  • The improvement of technical installations (hydraulic balancing, optimisation of controls, etc.);
  • The improvement of an industrial process (heat recovery, optimization, etc.).

Different tools are regularly used or developed by the ICEDD to carry out pre-feasibility studies (e.g. Cogencalc, PVcalc, QuickScanST, etc.). The ICEDD carries out numerous pre-feasibility studies as part of the various facilitator missions.

The ICEDD offers assistance with the dimensioning of the technical or technological solution, for example through the use of the Hyspot design software. The ICEDD can also assist the project sponsor in drafting specifications with the incorporation of energy clauses.

The ICEDD also offers a project monitoring service through rational commissioning of the technical systems in order to analyse and objectify, during the project’s guarantee period, thermal, hygrometric and respiratory comfort, energy performance, etc.
