More carbon neutral, more decentralized, more digital...
Energy generation and consumption will be different in the future. The energy of the future will be even more carbon neutral, more green, more efficient, more digital, more local, more decentralised and cleaner. ENGIE Electrabel is getting ready for this and is guiding its customers through this energy transition in which it strives to serve as a key stakeholder in Belgium. This aim goes hand-in-hand with a strong societal commitment towards communities, customers, employees and the environment.
