The future of onshore wind power

June 10, 2016

Wind power is an essential renewable energy source for Belgium to reach its 2020 “energy-climate” objectives and the 2030 objectives already agreed at the EU level. The share of wind energy in Belgium’s electricity production mix should reach 14% by 2020, of which 8.5% for onshore wind.

We believe that Europe should invest €150 billion in the development of smart grids to maximize the share of renewables, and in trans-European grid connections to ensure the security of supply.
