ALEGrO, the first interconnector between Belgium and Germany, celebrates its first anniversary and a year of good results

The first electricity interconnector between Belgium and Germany was commissioned a year ago (on 18 November 2020) by system operators Elia and Amprion. ALEGrO posted good results for its first year of operation: 93 % of availability and exchanges totalling 4.5 TWh.

The interconnector has made it possible to balance prices between markets and boost societal wellbeing. Moreover, it is an essential link in the construction of an integrated European electricity grid which facilitates the integration of renewable energy into the system and improves the security of supply of both countries.
