Purchasing categories

Like any company, Elia makes many different types of purchases to pursue its projects and ensure smooth operation day in and day out.

To maintain balance on the grid and offset energy losses, Elia must buy electricity since it does not have its own generating facilities. Specifically, Elia purchases energy reserves from power producers. Please visit the Energy purchases page for more information on what we call ancillary services.

Elia also makes purchases to carry out its grid investment projects and replace technical equipment. Such purchases are listed under Investment projects.
