Regulators are the ‘policemen’ of the electricity market, ensuring that it operates correctly.

The regulators supervise the operation of the electricity market. They have the power to issue opinions on or approve various documents relating to system operation (tariffs, development plans, etc.). They also play a central role in:

  • awarding supply licences;
  • authorising cogeneration facilities and facilities which generate renewable power;
  • issuing and managing green certificates.

The following regulators oversee the liberalised electricity market in Belgium:

  • CREG at federal level;
  • VREG for the Flemish Region;
  • CWaPE for the Walloon Region;
  • BRUGEL  for the Brussels-Capital Region.
