Belgium's energy market is living its biggest change since the liberalization of the market in 2002. The market is mutating into a fast innovative and changing ecosystem supporting new services and product offerings.

Worldwide, like Telecom markets in the '90s, Energy markets move from a monolithic and reactive systems to a highly competitive, innovative and collaborative market. Enablers of this awakening are, beside the trends of a highly competitive market, complex role players (i.e. prosumer) and renewal sustainability, also linked to new technologies such as Smart Grids, Smart Meters, Smart Users, Smart Homes and Internet of Things. Today, the Information Technology Revolution is hitting the E&U market!

In Belgium, a corner stone of that change are the “Smartization” of the networks and the setup of a federal Central Market System at Atrias (Live in 2018) managing the information exchanges and process executions of all market players
