Capacity Remuneration Mechanism

The federal energy strategy provides for the introduction of a Capacity Remuneration Mechanism (CRM) on the Belgian market.

The federal energy strategy was announced by the federal government on 30 March 2018 and provides for new long-term measures to guarantee Belgium’s security of supply. More specifically, this strategy requires that a Capacity Remuneration Mechanism (CRM) be introduced on the Belgian market. The federal government has decided to incorporate the introduction of such a CRM into the Act of 29 April 1999 on the organisation of the electricity market.

Task Force

The amendment to the act was approved at the plenary meeting of the Chamber on 4 April 2019. A CRM Task Force has been created to discuss the design principles of such a Capacity Remuneration Mechanism with stakeholders.
