Following the Kyoto agreements, the Belgian government has introduced several policies tending to reduce CO2 emissions and promoting the use of renewable energy. However, jointly to those actual and future mutations of the Belgian production park, projections have also shown an increase in the electricity consumption. The main goal of this article is thus to point out the impacts of those expected modifications on the reliability indexes of the Belgian electrical network. The proposed results are obtained thanks to MATLAB simulations realized on the Roy Billinton Test System, which has been slightly modified to suit the Belgian production plan.
