  • Renewable generation has broken multiple records in Belgium with offshore and onshore wind, and with solar power accounting for 18.6% of the electricity mix, Elia, Belgium’s electricity transmission system operator’s report said on Thursday.
  • The main driver for this increase was the weather, in terms of wind and solar, for increased installed capacity.
  • Wind power was up from 3,796 megawatts (MW) at the end of 2019 to 4,670 MW at the end of 2020 while photovoltaics (PV) were up from 3,887 MW at the end of 2019 to 4,788 MW at the end of 2020.
