Situation for winter 2012-2013 considered satisfactory for Europe and Belgium.

  • Moderate risk of power failure in Europe in case of major cold snap (which happens statistically once every 10 years) across the entire continent, combined with no wind or solar power.
  • Belgium structurally dependent on imports for the entire winter period.
  • Elia grid enables imports up to 3500 MW; suppliers responsible for purchasing energy.
