Find out more about Offshore Wind
Take a closer look at the wind turbines in the Belgian North Sea
Offshore wind energy in the Belgian North Sea amounts today to an installed capacity of 2,262 MW. This can generate an average of 8 TWh of green electricity per year, which is about 10% of the total electricity demand in Belgium. By 2030, the offshore wind capacity in the North Sea will continue to grow to 6-8 GW, which will cover about 30% of the electricity demand with wind energy in the Belgian North Sea.
Offshore wind is a building block of the Belgian energy transition. If you, your organisation or your class would like to learn more about it, workshops and visits are organised throughout Belgium. Discover the different activities below.
