This demonstration project for urban developer Ertzberg is the largest and most ambitious urban centre development of Belgium. The Tweewaters district has a surfacea area of more than 11 ha and 5,000 people will be living and working there.
The use of 100% green electricity and green heating by the local energyp production in combination with the urban heating and the total ban of fossil fuels which leads to a CO2-reduction of 9,240 tons a year, make Tweewaters the first CO2 negative town district in our Belgium.
This new quarter is a model of a sustainable urban developmenwt, with local services which decrease family expenses and increase the comforts of life.
There is an available area for a park of 3.5 hectares. Furthermore the district becomes 100% carless.
With Tweewaters Ertzberg want to address all aspects that are embedded in our society and have an impact on the ecologica footprint: energy, waste, water, mobility, consumption built-up surface, services.
