Belgium power markets long-term outlook H2 2014

Belgium power markets long-term outlook H2 2014

Report summary

Belgium’s generation fleet is dominated by gas-fired and nuclear capacity and, although the future extent of nuclear’s role has been called into some doubt by recent government announcement, we expect both sources to remain major features of the market, while renewables also account for an increasing share of supply in the longer term.
