The energy mix: generating the energy of the future

ENGIE Electrabel has a clear strategy for contributing to the security of supply and satisfying all of its customers: generate energy using different technologies and fuels rather than just focusing on a single source. This is called the energy mix.

A common sense decision that benefits customers

The balanced energy mix is a key element of our strategy. We see it as a clear response to various environmental, economic and energy-related challenges:

Local, diverse and flexible generation facilities

ENGIE Electrabel, Belgium’s top producer of electricity, has diverse and flexible generation facilities. Electricity is generated in Belgium, so close to the end customers, at ±85 sites comprising approximately 200 generation units varying in size from very small to huge. This diversity best utilises the complementarity of technologies, maximises their strengths and minimises their weaknesses with a view to providing our customers with a constant supply of electricity under any circumstances.

As such, ENGIE Electrabel’s teams comprise experts able to operate:

ENGIE Electrabel: a driving force behind the energy transition

Getting greener and greener:

As Belgium’s top investor in and producer of green energies, we want to further develop generation using renewable sources. By 2020, 200 wind turbines will be operating throughout Belgium.

Low-carbon energy:

ENGIE Electrabel’s generation facilities are one of the lowest emitters of CO2 in Europe, emitting approximately 50% less than the European average.

We want to maintain and secure these positions as part of our future investments.

Did you know: power plants that do not emit any CO2 account for 69% of the generation capacity of ENGIE lectrabel’s generation facilities.
