Eneco grows reach with Eni Belgium buyout
By Ilaria Valtimora

Dutch utility Eneco has just unveiled its strategy to grow in Belgium’s 2.4GW wind market. Last Friday, it agreed to buy Italian oil giant Eni’s operations in the country.

Eneco has signed a deal to take ownership of Eni Wind Belgium and Eni’s Belgian gas and power retail arm. Eni Belgium serves approximately 850,000 electricity and gas connection points in Belgium and has a market share of around 10%, with 200 staff. The company was established in 2012 when Distrigas and Nuon Belgium merged. Since then, Eni Belgium has increased its customer base by over 30%.

Meanwhile, Eneco has been present in the country through its Eneco Belgium unit since 2011. Following this deal, the company aims to increase its market share to serve more than 1million Belgian households and 55,000 business customers.

Eneco’s strategy is clear…
