Green electricity in Belgium –

Published on: Last updated:

Dik Vansintjan set up Ecopower, a company which specialises in the production of « green » energy in Belgium in 1991. In Eeklo, in East Flanders, he has installed 3 wind turbines which can supply energy to 2 500 people. Ecopower is financially supported by a bank which specialises in ethical funding: today, 7 000 households own bonds in this company. Belgian legislation, which makes it compulsory for those who manage electricity networks to give priority to electricity generated by renewable energy or cogeneration, is also an advantage for Ecopower.
