You heard about it in the media, on social networks, in the street, at work, at school, at the baker’s and at the butcher’s… everyone was talking about the risk of a power shortage last winter. And sometimes the answers conflict or are incomplete, which only causes confusion.

Elia, the transmission system operator for Belgium’s high-voltage grid, created the Power in Balance site to give everyone the information they need to understand the situation, with explanations in clear, simple language. We are also providing transparent 7-day forecasts for the power grid. And a clear view on the situation during summer.

If you still have questions, or if you have any comments about the site, please feel free to contact us.

Enjoy your visit!
