In 2022, an energy crisis drove prices to extreme levels in Belgium, putting households and businesses under severe pressure. The nine Synergrid transmission grid operators took control of tariffs, paid special attention to customers in difficulty and continued to invest in a more renewable energy system. During that year, grid operators invested more than €2 billion in electricity and gas. A total of 9.8 million electricity and gas customers benefited from the services provided by the grid operators and their 13,000 employees.
The ongoing energy transition is critically important when it comes to consuming energy that is less carbon-intensive, more sustainable and more local. Transmission grids play a crucial role in the transition and we must invest massively and intelligently in them. Customers are also becoming major players in the system and system operators must develop tools to give them greater flexibility.
Collectively coordinating the actions of grid operators within Synergrid is essential for meeting the global challenges of energy transition.
