There will soon be a charging station within 150 metres for every customer in Brussels!

At the beginning of April 2023, the Brussels distribution network operator Sibelga awarded EnergyVision a contract to deploy 1,400 new charging points for electric vehicles in 2023. This network densification will allow every customer in Brussels to access a charging solution within a radius of 150 metres from the start of next year.

1,400 new charging points in Brussels in 2023

In 2021, the Brussels Capital Region entrusted Sibelga with coordinating the deployment of a public network of charging stations.

The aim is to have 22,000 publicly accessible charging points by 2035!

Some 250 points were installed in 2022 as part of this same ambitious project, and this is just the beginning. Today, every customer in Brussels already has a public charging point within 250 metres of their home.

During a new call for tenders at the beginning of 2023, Sibelga chose EnergyVision for the installation and operation of 1,400 additional charging points by the end of the year, thus considerably increasing the territorial coverage.

By 1 January 2024, every electric vehicle owner will have a charging solution within 150 metres of their home.

Infrastructure pooling and densification using real-time data

At the same time, in 2022, after initial conclusive tests, Sibelga conducted a study that confirmed the possibility of placing charging stations on public lamp posts to limit urban clutter on public roads.

Sibelga will also analyse the real-time usage data of existing charging stations to anticipate the charging solutions according to current needs. This evaluation will take place at the district level.
