This winter, many measures have been taken to guarantee the electricity supply as far as possible. The strategic reserve has been doubled, the planned closures of several power plants have been cancelled or postponed and the peak import capacity has been optimised.
Furthermore, the availability of our nuclear generation facilities is greater than last winter, since it was announced that Doel 3 (1,006MW) and Tihange 2 (1,008MW) would be restarted.
As a result, the situation looks very different from last winter. The risk of an electricity shortage and supply problems is much lower.
