Elia no longer expects to activate strategic reserves this week


19-01-2017

Elia believes that the strategic reserves are unlikely to be activated this week. Owing to an improvement in the weather forecast, the predicted consumption peaks in France are turning out to be lower than expected and the situation on the European energy markets is under control.

By working in close coordination with European transmission system operators, Elia has been able to maintain security of supply without activating the strategic reserves. In Belgium, market players have made maximum efforts to optimise generation facilities and maintain balance in their customer portfolios.
