Minister Bart Tommelein visits Elia's national control centre
On Thursday, 8 February, the Flemish Minister of Energy visited Elia's national control centre – the nerve centre of Belgium's power grid – to see the facilities.
The system operator monitors the Belgian power grid from the recently refurbished national control centre to keep the grid balanced 24/7. This is becoming more and more complicated due to the increase in cross-border trading and renewable energy generation. This development requires very precise forecasts and great flexibility to cope with the system's fluctuations. Elia's national control centre is equipped with the latest software and is ready for the energy transition.
