EnergyVille/VITO creates an energy balance every year on behalf of the Flemish Region. The report 'Energy Balance Flanders 1990-2016' charts the evolution of Flemish energy flows since 1990 and publishes the new energy figures for 2016.

Report Energy balance Flanders 1990-2016

The report 'Energy Balance Flanders 1990-2016' charts the evolution of the Flemish energy flows since 1990 and publishes the new energy figures for 2016. It focuses on gross inland energy consumption (BBE) in Flanders. This consists of the energy consumption of the transformation sector, the non-energetic end use and the energetic end use of energy. Together with the distribution of fuel to the international air and shipping bunkers in Flanders, these data make up the primary energy consumption. The distribution of energy among consumers is also discussed and the report also provides insight into the consumption of the various energy carriers.

The gross inland energy consumption or BBE in 2016 amounted to 1,560.8 PJ. The BBE increased by 6.2% compared to 2015 and decreased by 5.0% compared to 2005.

The energetic end use of energy has the largest share in the BBE, at 61%. This includes the energy consumption of the industry, the residential and tertiary sector, agriculture and transport. In addition, there is also the non-energetic end use of the industry with a share of 18%. The transformation sector accounts for 21%.

In 2016, the Flemish gross inland energy consumption was composed as follows:
