Face the challenges of the energy transition
ENGIE uses all of its research and innovation capabilities to face the challenges of the energy transition and to offer services that are ever more effective and respectful of the environment to its customers, whether they are private individuals, businesses or communities.
In Belgium, 67% of the ENGIE electricity production facilities emit no CO2. This makes it one of the lowest carbon-producing facilities in Europe and a stakeholder already highly committed to the energy transition. The ENGIE Group will be increasing this momentum even further by investing 1.5 billion euros in 3 main areas over 3 years:
- digitalisation of energy management systems in buildings
- mobility solutions
- energy storage systems
This ambitious plan needs to enable the Group to position itself in the energy world of tomorrow.
In Belgium – one of the 70 countries in the world in which the Group is active – ENGIE has 8 subsidiaries, 17,000 skilled staff and over 200 researchers to meet these challenges.
The energy transition will enable the development of a low-carbon economy. To become the leader in Belgium, ENGIE is proficient in every aspect of the energy trade – energy production for optimising consumption; research and innovation for maintaining highly complex installations; engineering for constructing and implementing your project.
