Learn more about the project

The project

Luminus and its partners (UNamur, ULiège, Profish technologies, EDF R&D) received a grant from the European Commission in June 2017 to implement and validate different means of protection for two species of migratory fish in the Meuse, the silver eel and the smolt. The Life4Fish program was born. It aims to contribute to the protection of the two species through the sustainable exploitation of hydroelectric power plants.

The Life4Fish project symbolises Luminus’s determination to play an active part in renewable energy production and in the fight against climate change. It is a major challenge, linked to our local presence.

The decline of environmental quality, caused by global warming among other things, puts nature under a lot of pressure. Projects dedicated to the protection of biodiversity and the environment, like Life4Fish for fish fauna, therefore deserve special attention.

Green energy production aims at maximum respect for fauna and flora through the use of the best available technical means.

In order to properly implement this action plan for the protection of species, Luminus, your energy partner, has called upon the research departments of the universities of Liège and Namur, experts of the EDF Group and the company Profish.

This initiative fits perfectly with Luminus' purpose: to build a CO2-neutral energy future reconciling preservation of the planet, well-being and development through electricity and innovative solutions and services.
