PurchasingAs well as being the interface between internal customers and suppliers, the Purchasing Department draws up Elia’s purchasing strategy and ensures that the company makes the best possible choices when it comes to suppliers. This is a complex but exciting job, as many different factors have to be taken into account.

    In addition to buying energy to maintain balance on the grid, the department is also responsible for national and international purchases of equipment and studies for grid development projects, as well as procurement for the general services associated with the day-to-day running of the company.

    The Purchasing Department therefore plays an essential role in meeting Elia’s strategic, tactical and operational objectives.
