First interconnector between Belgium and Germany

The ALEGrO project, the first electricity interconnector between Belgium and Germany, can now begin after acquiring the necessary permits and authorisations. Work is scheduled to start in mid-January and Elia expects construction to take two years.

As a reminder, the ALEGrO project will be the first interconnector between Belgium and Germany. It will pass through 14 municipalities and span 90 km (49 km in Belgium and 41 km in Germany). The project has three major objectives:

  • effectively integrate renewable energies;
  • contribute to price convergence;
  • enhance the security of the power supply.
