August 18, 2016

Client:  Flemish Energy Agency
Period:  2013


Objective of the project for the Flemish Goverment was to develop recommendations for the optimisation of the renewables support system in Flanders. For this purpose 3E analysed in detail the different support systems (certificate, quota and FIT systems) in the different European member states, compared these with the current Flemish system and recommended adaptations and improvements.

A key focus of the investigation was the analysis of the neighbouring member states’ FIT and the possibility to transfer the concept to the Belgium system. 3E realised this project in close collaboration with a broad set of different stakeholders. The outcome of 3E’s analysis is now basis for ongoing political discussions to change the current framework.
