“Passive customers who have never chosen a supplier”

Brussels-Capital Region: Information on the volume of energy (Mwh) and the number of supply points of "passive" customers, i.e. customers who have never chosen a supplier and who continue to be supplied with gas and electricity by the default supplier, broken down by professional or residential customers and by standard consumption profile (AMR, S11, S12, S21, S22, S31, S32, S41).

• “AMR”: The so-called “continuous” reading frequency for “AMR”, automatic meter reading. Index information is recorded every 15 minutes for electricity and every hour for gas. Both readings are then remotely transmitted to the DSO once a day

• “S11”: Electricity - Non-residential with a power supply of < 56 kVA

• “S12”: Electricity - Non-residential with a power supply of ≥ 56 kVA

• “S21”: Electricity - Residential with night/day consumption ratio of < 1.3 (or network user without exclusive night rate when consumption history is missing)

• “S22”: Electricity - Residential with night/day consumption ratio of ≥ 1.3 (or network user with exclusive night rate when consumption history is missing)

• “S31”: Natural Gas - Non-residential with consumption of < 150,000 kWh/year (or non-residential customer with meter < G160 when consumption history is missing)

• “S32”: Natural Gas - Non-residential with consumption of ≥ 150,000 kWh/year (or non-residential customer with meter ≥ G160 when consumption history is missing)

• “S41”: Natural Gas - Residential

“Passive” customers are those who, at the time of the liberalisation of the energy market (rolled out in full from 1 July 2004 for business customers and 1 January 2007 for residential customers), did not complete any formalities to choose their supplier.

The data is provided quarterly by Engie-Electrabel, the default supplier.

The data provided may differ from one report to another. This is due to the correction process established by the stakeholders in the energy sector to improve the quality of the data.
