Federal Development Plan for the Belgian transmission system (110kV to 380kV) over the period 2020-2030
Elia invites all stakeholders to take part in this public consultation on its draft Federal Development Plan for the Belgian transmission system (110kV to 380kV) over the period 2020-2030 and the accompanying environmental impact report.
The development plan contains a detailed estimate of transmission capacity requirements, indicating the underlying assumptions, and sets out the investment programme that the system operator pledges to implement to meet those requirements. Consequently, the present draft plan took on board various studies and analyses carried out at both the European and Belgian levels to determine the electricity transmission requirements needs in Belgium over the timeframe of the plan and beyond.
Pursuant to the law of 13 February 2006 on assessing the environmental impact of certain plans and programmes and on public participation in the drafting of plans and programmes, the environmental impact of the development plan also has to be assessed. The same law stipulates that the development plan and accompanying environmental impact report must be submitted to a public consultation process.
Organising this consultation process on both documents will bring the public's concerns to Elia's attention, enabling them to be taken into account when the final version of the development plan is drafted.
For further information on our Federal Development Plan 2020-2030, please see the dedicated website.
The consultation period will run from October 15 to December 15, 2018 inclusive.
