Belgium energy markets outlook 2013 - overview

Belgium energy markets outlook 2013 - overview

Report summary

Total energy demand has been volatile in recent years, partly attributable to the economic recession of 2008-09. Total Primary Energy Demand (TPED) declined by 3% in 2012 as demand for Belgian exports in major markets declined due to fiscal austerity and concerns over European sovereign debt. Within the forecast, energy demand will peak in the 2020s and decline thereafter due to restructuring of the industrial sector, efficiency gains, and limited economic growth.

Due to their sensitivity to political events and the global economy, energy demand and trade remain extremely volatile. The rapidly changing cost environment for hydrocarbon production and renewable energy, combined with energy policy changes, means the fuel mix in energy markets can be unpredictable at best. Further complicating the outlook is the transition and pace of the energy-intensive developing world from industrial to services-based economic growth, supporting the growing need for power generation.
