Elia publishes a vision paper on the future of the Belgian energy system


14-06-2017

Elia wishes to make a reasoned contribution to the social debate on the future of the Belgian energy system in 2050. The regional and federal governments intend to take some important decisions on this. The Energy Pact, currently being drawn up, is designed to set out the long-term future of a sector undergoing rapid, fundamental changes in a supranational context.


The electricity grid is a driving factor behind economic growth and making our society sustainable by integrating increasing volumes of renewable energy.

By writing both this vision paper and the follow-up study that Elia will publish in November 2017, we aim to contribute fully to solving the challenges facing Belgium in the energy transition.
