Belgium’s citizens communities for offshore wind

Last updated: 2 August 2023

Belgium wants its citizens to play a more active role in the electricity market. From 2023, Belgian citizens will be able to form communities and invest together in offshore wind projects to then enjoy the electricity they produce. Belgium recognises that wind farms are essential to achieve the country’s renewable energy targets and wants to double installed offshore wind capacity by 2030. This will allow people to have a more direct role in the energy transition, and will promote better understanding and social acceptance of offshore wind projects.
