ENGIE Electrabel: a local player in the energy transition
Since 1905, our company has constantly been evolving so that it is always where it is needed: as an energy supplier close to its customers, as a responsible producer of electricity and as a committed societal player. Alongside our ENGIE Group, we have the ambition to be in Belgium the leader in the energy transition to a low-carbon economy.
Safely generate and supply the energy of tomorrow under the best conditions
We generate local and diversified electricity which we sell, in addition to natural gas and a range of energy services, to residential customers, professionals, SMEs, major corporations and public institutions. Our activities are supported and optimised by energy management and trading operations of the ENGIE Group on the European and international energy markets.
We focus on being a partner for our 2.71 million customers who inspire us every day. We listen to them and, because we are invested in ensuring that they have the energy they need to live comfortably, we develop innovative and sustainable solutions. Our competitive offers satisfy the expectations of our customers looking to better manage the challenges posed by the energy transition.
To achieve this aim, we can rely on the expertise of the ENGIE Group, a global energy player and an expert in three fields: electricity, natural gas and energy services.
