Winter outlook 2018-2019: Favourable developments for November, but additional efforts required for January and February



The need for additional capacity to maintain security of supply throughout the winter is down from 1,600-1,700 MW to 700-900 MW.

While the 750 MW of announced additional measures and the bringing forward of the maintenance of Tihange 1 have not quite allowed the legal criteria to be met, the risk of load shedding has been reduced substantially.
