WP 04-20 - Fuel for the future - More molecules or deep electrification of Belgium's energy system by 2050

Danielle Devogelaer

Working Papers from Federal Planning Bureau, Belgium

Abstract: In this report, the Federal Planning Bureau sets out to scrutinise the place hydrogen can occupy in the future Belgian energy system by 2050. In fact, this publication focuses on two divergent evolutions of energy (end) uses: on the one hand, a far-reaching electrification of the final energy consumption, on the other, a sustained and increased use of gas for transport, (industrial) heating and power generation. Different outcomes of the two future visions are reported such as the required investments in infrastructure (interconnections, electrolysers, storage).
