Overview

Belgium energy market report offers an incisive and reliable overview of the energy sector in Belgium. With a focus on oil, gas, coal and power markets, the report provides a complete picture of the country situation, dynamics, current issues and future prospects. With 2014 market data and continuous follow-up of markets news, this report brings clear and concise insights with which to tackle national energy challenges and opportunities.

  • Institutions & Energy Policy

    The institutional framework of the energy sector is based on the subsidiarity principle, i.e. the sharing of responsibilities between the federal authorities, the three provincial authorities (or regions) (Flanders, Wallonia and Brussels) and the local authorities.

    The federal authorities...

  • Energy Supply

    Oil:

    All the oil is imported (60 Mt in 2015). Crude oil accounts for around 58% of oil imports and 58% of crude imports come from Russia and Saudi Arabia (31% and 27%, respectively, in 2015). The country re-exports a substantial volume of oil products (around 25 Mt in 2015). There are four refineries...

  • Energy Prices

    Oil:

    Taxes on motor fuels are high, at around 55% and 45% of consumer prices for gasoline and diesel, respectively (excise tax of €61c/l for gasoline and €49.7c/l for diesel).

    In July 2015, as part of it Tax Shift project, the Government announced it will progressively raise excise taxes on...

  • Energy Consumption

    Total energy consumption per capita is 55% higher than the EU average, at 4.8 toe compared to 3.1 toe (2015). The difference is mainly due to a higher final consumption per capita (3.8 toe compared to 2.2 toe). Electricity consumption per capita is 30% above the EU average and amounted to 7 200 ...

  • Issues & Prospects

    According to the Federal Planning Bureau's (FPB) "Economic Outlook 2016-2021", final consumption will increase only slightly until 2021 (+0.2%/year), while total consumption is expected to rise by 1.1%/year (due to the comeback of nuclear). The Outlook foresees the stabilisation of final energy...
