Mission statement

We deliver the infrastructure of the future and innovate in services that will pave the way to a reliable and sustainable electricity system, placing the community's interest at the heart of all our decisions.


In the interest of society

For a reliable, sustainable and affordable energy system

Being the transmission system operator for Belgium, Elia is responsible for the transmission of electricity throughout the country. This means that we play a key role in the well-being of our society, in the development of our economy and in the decarbonisation of the energy sector.

We are aiming for a reliable, sustainable and affordable energy system. Developing our grid infrastructure is critically important to this goal. We realise the grid of the future through proactive dialogue with all of our stakeholders, based on mutual respect and empathy to come to the best societal and environmental solutions.

We also believe that our technical knowledge and analyses support policymaking and contribute to the public debate on the future of the energy system. A system operator that always puts society first is key to successfully implementing the energy transition.


“We will lead the way in the energy revolution by developing diversified, sustainable and reliable on- and offshore electricity systems that open up new possibilities.”

Chris Peeters, CEO Elia Group


A reliable system 

An energy mix that allows demand to be met at all times, promoting economic activity and safeguarding our prosperity.

An affordable system 

Thanks to its well-developed grid, Belgium has access to the most efficient sources of energy, both at home and abroad. This ensures price convergence with neighbouring countries and makes us more competitive.

A sustainable system

Through renewable integration that fully exploits domestic potential and supplements it with renewable energy generation from abroad via additional interconnectors.
