The Future Electricity Mix in Belgium
At the moment, a paradigm shift is occurring in the Belgian electricity landscape. This is caused by evolutions on the production side, which represent a major challenge to the grid operator, electricity producers and the Belgian government. Therefore, an effective policy on energy efficiency and demand response should be combined with investments in production capacity and an appropriate regulatory framework in order to secure future electricity supply. This Sia Partners' study details the current and prospective mismatch between electricity consumption and production by 2025. Furthermore, it calculates an optimal electricity mix for 2025 that would ensure security of supply.
