Investment: Belgian Eco Energy (BEE)
Updated: Mar 17
Climate change and the diminishing of fossil fuel reserves are among the largest challenges facing our world today. Our renewable energy capacity must be increased in order to transition to economies that serve present and future generations alike. With energy-intensive industrial and residential sectors in Belgium, results in this direction will only be achieved by changing technical and social norms.
Company's inception year: 2010
KOIS investment year: 2012
Target population: companies and authorities that are producers or consumers of locally produced sustainable energy
About Belgian Eco Energy
Belgian Eco Energy (BEE) is an integrated energy company, which specializes in the development, construction, and operation of renewable energy projects (wind, biomass, solar energy and combined heat and power), as well as the supply of locally generated and sustainable gas and electricity to industrial customers at a very competitive price. The list of BEE’s ongoing and future projects is long, including mostly wind turbine farms and two biomass plants.
KOIS invested in BEE in 2012, two years after it was created by three founders with extensive experience in the energy sector (ex-management of Eneco, Electrabel, and Essent - Belgium local leading energy utilities). BEE has the potential to help Belgium transition towards renewable energy sources, contributing to the country’s efforts to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 2020 and reach the climate change target set by the European Union.
