Flanders surpasses wind and solar energy targets
Flanders has surpassed its wind and solar energy targets in 2017. Last year 204 MWe wind energy and 177 MWe solar energy was produced, while only 150% MWe was expected. Flemish Energy Minister Bart Tommelein (Open Vld) is happy with the results, showing that “despite of all negativism we achieved our goals”.
Optimistic for 2020
Tommelein is planning to continue on the same line and is “optimistic to meet the defined targets by 2020”. “Thanks to the efforts we all put into renewable energy we can achieve our future goals.”
