Elia is Belgium’s transmission system operator and is responsible for the transmission of electricity. Electricity is transmitted over the high-voltage grid from electricity generators to the distribution system operators and large industrial consumers. As a system operator, Elia organizes transparent, objective and non-discriminatory access to the grid. Elia owns all of Belgium's 150 to 380 kV grid infrastructure and almost 94% of its 30 to 70 kV grid infrastructure. Elia's grid forms a key connection between France, Europe's largest electricity exporter, and the markets of Northern Europe.
