They can also be used to evaluate policy actions in energy and environment, to quantify the impacts of political measures, to monitor the share of renewable energy in the energymix and to gain insight into Belgium's energy dependence and security of supply.

Five energy balances by energy source are made available as well as an global balance that includes the five previous balances.

  • Natural and derived gas

  • Petroleum and petroleum products

  • Electricity

  • Renewable energy and energy from waste

  • Solid fuels

  • Global energy balance
